I recently sold some land I had inherited a few years ago and believe I will owe capital gains tax's on the value increase from the time it was inherited. I also have some long term losses in stock that I have yet to take and was wondering if I could use those losses to offset the gains for tax purposes.

Thanks, Grimmy
