The capital loss carry over form the previous year shows on Schedule D. Even if you had no stock sales for 2019, TurboTax would generate Schedule D just for the carry over.
For 2019 2020 and 2021, long term capital loss carry over shows on line 14 of Schedule D and Short-term capital loss carryover on line 6.
TurboTax will also do a capital loss carryforward worksheet to show the amount that carries to the next year, Although, in most cases, that amount is discernable on Schedule D.
