Maybe if you look at it this way:You can use all capital losses to offset any capital gains PLUS $3000 against other income if your losses exceed your gains.So if you have $10000 in gains and $15000 in losses, you can offset 100% of your $10000 in gains Plus $3000 of other income and only have to carry over $2000 to the following year.This is a law that is so confusing to many people. I hope this helps.
