Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
Please be sure that correctly determine the loss realized from the sale of your rental property.
Generally - yes - losses may be carried to other years - but there are some rules how to accomplish that.
If you have significant losses this year - most likely - you will have a NOL - Net Operating Loss. Please see for reference the IRS Publication 536
Generally, if you have an NOL for a tax year, you must carry back the entire amount of the NOL to the 2 tax years before the NOL year (the carry back period), and then carry forward any remaining NOL for up to 20 years after the NOL year (the carry forward period).
You can, however, choose not to carry back an NOL and only carry it forward. See Waiving the Carry back Period in the publication referenced above.
You cannot deduct any part of the NOL remaining after the 20-year carry forward period.
Claiming a NOL is relatively complex area of the tax - so most likely you would need a help from the tax professional - but considering total amount of losses - it might worth trying.
Let me know if you need any help or clarification.
