That is a yearly amount.

Once you net out all of your capital gains and losses, if you find that you have a net loss, you can use up to $3k of that loss against normal income (such as salaries, interest, dividends, etc.). Any amount over the allowable $3k will be carried forward as a capital loss carryover into the next tax year.
