You probably had an additional $354 of capital gains reported on a 2016 Form 1099-DIV. 

Before applying the $3000 carry-forward loss, the program offsets any current year capital  gains with the carry-forward loss balance. Then it applies an additional $3000 of the remaining carry-forward loss against your other, ordinaRY INCOME.
