    Is there a limit to short-term losses that can be deducted?

    When you are offsetting short-term gains with short-term losses on your income tax return, is there a limit to the amount of short-term losses that can be claimed in any one year?

    You can deduct $3000 per year, and able to carry over the excess loss at $3000 per year thereafter.
    I believe there's a maximum you can deduct of $3,000 per year. check with IRS
