Hello,
So there is a slight error in your calculations. For line 6 (Enter the loss from Schedule D (540) or (540nr)), line 8, it should be entered as a positive number and not a negative number.
So line 8 will end up being 11, which equals 0. You should enter 0 there, Or say that you do not have any CA capital loss carryover.
