Well it's that time of year, I have a capital loss from earlier this year, I know I can carry this forward into future years but I'm considering taking a gain now to offset it. However I keep reading that one can also use a capital loss in the current year to offset capital gains from pervious years, but it's never explained how one does this. Anyone here knows how this actually works?
