It's only the NET capital loss that can't be deducted in one year if it exceeds $3,000. Also, don't forget that if your net capital loss exceeds $3,000, you can carry the excess loss forward.

Very true. For some reason, I thought it was $2000 for those of us that file as single. Is this incorrect?
