Suppose I have $10K of long term capital losses in FY2018. I'm married filing jointly, so the max I can deduct is $3K, and carry over $7K to the next year.
Question: do I then have to deduct $3K against capital gains (long-term only? can I use short-term too?), or can I somehow deduct all $7K against income and/or gains.
I want to avoid the hassle of book-keeping and tracking losses for two-to-three years if possible.
