After looking around the net for a simple definition I turn here for an answer. Each year as I prepare my taxes I see references to something called "carryovers" (i.e. carryover worksheet). My failed research seems to indicate that there are two categories: loss carryovers and charitable contribution carryovers. Unfortunately I can't find an answer that starts at the beginning.

Can someone please define for me what a carryover is (particularly as related to charitable contributions)? Also, are there additional types of carryovers?
