capital gain. If held more than one year it is long-term. If held one year or less ,it is short-term. Capital losses offset capital gains first and then ordinary income up to $3,000. Any unused losses can be carried forward to offset capital gains and ordinary income in future years. Losses can be carried forward indefinitely.
