After my father-in-law died a few years ago, his house was sold, with proceeds being divided among my husband & his brother. H&R Block did our taxes for that calendar year, & there was a significant carryover loss related to the house selling for less than the fair market value. There is still a balance to carryover again for the next 2 years($3000, $2200). My husband has had some severe health challenges this year. Should he pass away, would I still qualify to carryover the loss, since I wasn't the sibling to inherit.
