Let's suppose I have a net short term loss of $2500 in late 2019.
I also can take a long term capital gain of $2500.
Am I correct that I would be better off taking the gain in 2020.?
The idea is I get the short term loss at my full tax rate and get the
long term gain at a reduced tax rate next year? Or am I missing some
benefit of taking the long term gain in 2019? It seems if I take it in
2019 I lose that reduced tax benefit because it goes against the short
