531.4 carbs 194.1g protein and 95.8g fat
gives me 56.5/20.6/22.9 and 3,764 calories
im 5'11 and 178lbs

These are my current macros and are working very well, I won't be cutting until April time but want to start planning a good cutting diet, what should I change my macro levels to? Obviously protein levels should stay around the same, but what should my calorie target be to slowly reduce my fat % by about 2-3 pounds a week

Don't cut your macros too drastically at first - ease into the cut as time progresses. Start by decreasing by 200 calories and then go from there - probably in the same increment every week until you reach your goal and just fill out your C/F however works best for you so that you have enough energy, sanity, and satiety to make it through. ;)
