ResNullius: "I've got a signficant amount of cap losses from selling equities in order to increase the fixed asset side of our portfolio. Current tax law allows me to carry the loss forward forever" until you die.

OCD - fixed that.

"Have any of you guys heard any rumblings about doing away with the carry forward provisions, with a move towards use it or lose it? I know this is guesswork, but just wondering what the rumors are about this."

No, I have not.
