Irs gov 1040x form If your NOL is not used up, you can carry the rest to the next earliest carryback year, and so on. Irs gov 1040x form If you waive the carryback period or do not use up the NOL in the carryback period, carry forward what remains of the NOL to the 20 tax years following the NOL year. Irs gov 1040x form Start by carrying it to the first tax year after the NOL year. Irs gov 1040x form If you do not use it up, carry the unused part to the next year. Irs gov 1040x form Continue to carry any unused part of the NOL forward until the NOL is used up or you complete the 20-year carryforward period. Irs gov 1040x form Example 1. Irs gov 1040x form You started your business as a sole proprietor in 2013 and had a $42,000 NOL for the year. Irs gov 1040x form No part of the NOL qualifies for the 3-year, 5-year, or 10-year carryback. Irs gov 1040x form You begin using your NOL in 2011, the second year before the NOL year, as shown in the following chart. Irs gov 1040x form Year   Carryback/  Carryover Unused  Loss 2011 $42,000 $40,000 2012 40,000 37,000 2013 (NOL year)     2014 37,000 31,500 2015 31,500 22,500 2016 22,500 12,700 2017 12,700 4,000 2018 4,000 -0- If your loss were larger, you could carry it forward until the year 2033. Irs gov 1040x form If you still had an unused 2013 carryforward after the year 2033, you would not be allowed to deduct it. Irs gov 1040x form Example 2. Irs gov 1040x form Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that $4,000 of the NOL is attributable to a casualty loss and this loss qualifies for a 3-year carryback period. Irs gov 1040x form You begin using the $4,000 in 2010. Irs gov 1040x form As shown in the following chart, $3,000 of this NOL is used in 2010. Irs gov 1040x form The remaining $1,000 is carried to 2011 with the $38,000 NOL that you must begin using in 2011. Irs gov 1040x form Year   Carryback/  Carryover Unused  Loss 2010 $4,000 $1,000 2011 39,000 37,000 2012 37,000 34,000 2013 (NOL year)     2014 34,000 28,500 2015 28,500 19,500 2016 19,500 9,700 2017 9,700 1,000 2018 1,000 -0- How To Claim an NOL Deduction If you have not already carried the NOL to an earlier year, your NOL deduction is the total NOL. Irs gov 1040x form If you carried the NOL to an earlier year, your NOL deduction is the carried over NOL minus the NOL amount you used in the earlier year or years. Irs gov 1040x form If you carry more than one NOL to the same year, your NOL deduction is the total of these carrybacks and carryovers. Irs gov 1040x form NOL resulting in no taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form   If your NOL is more than the taxable income of the year you carry it to (figured before deducting the NOL), you generally will have an NOL carryover to the next year. Irs gov 1040x form See How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later, to determine how much NOL you have used and how much you carry to the next year. Irs gov 1040x form Deducting a Carryback If you carry back your NOL, you can use either Form 1045 or Form 1040X. Irs gov 1040x form You can get your refund faster by using Form 1045, but you have a shorter time to file it. Irs gov 1040x form You can use Form 1045 to apply an NOL to all carryback years. Irs gov 1040x form If you use Form 1040X, you must use a separate Form 1040X for each carryback year to which you apply the NOL. Irs gov 1040x form Estates and trusts that do not file Form 1045 must file an amended Form 1041 (instead of Form 1040X) for each carryback year to which NOLs are applied. Irs gov 1040x form Use a copy of the appropriate year's Form 1041, check the “Amended return” box, and follow the Form 1041 instructions for amended returns. Irs gov 1040x form Include the NOL deduction with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a). Irs gov 1040x form Also, see the special procedures for filing an amended return due to an NOL carryback, explained under Form 1040X , later. Irs gov 1040x form Form 1045. Irs gov 1040x form   You can apply for a quick refund by filing Form 1045. Irs gov 1040x form This form results in a tentative adjustment of tax in the carryback year. Irs gov 1040x form See the Illustrated Form 1045 . Irs gov 1040x form at the end of this discussion. Irs gov 1040x form   If the IRS refunds or credits an amount to you from Form 1045 and later determines that the refund or credit is too much, the IRS may assess and collect the excess immediately. Irs gov 1040x form   Generally, you must file Form 1045 on or after the date you file your tax return for the NOL year, but not later than one year after the end of the NOL year. Irs gov 1040x form If the last day of the NOL year falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the form will be considered timely if postmarked on the next business day. Irs gov 1040x form For example, if you are a calendar year taxpayer with a carryback from 2013 to 2011, you must file Form 1045 on or after the date you file your tax return for 2013, but no later than December 31, 2014. Irs gov 1040x form Form 1040X. Irs gov 1040x form   If you do not file Form 1045, you can file Form 1040X to get a refund of tax because of an NOL carryback. Irs gov 1040x form File Form 1040X within 3 years after the due date, including extensions, for filing the return for the NOL year. Irs gov 1040x form For example, if you are a calendar year taxpayer and filed your 2011 return by the April 15, 2012, due date, you must file a claim for refund of 2008 tax because of an NOL carryback from 2011 by April 15, 2015. Irs gov 1040x form   Attach a computation of your NOL using Form 1045, Schedule A, and, if it applies, your NOL carryover using Form 1045, Schedule B, discussed later . Irs gov 1040x form Refiguring your tax. Irs gov 1040x form   To refigure your total tax liability for a carryback year, first refigure your adjusted gross income for that year. Irs gov 1040x form (On Form 1045, use lines 10 and 11 and the “After carryback” column for the applicable carryback year. Irs gov 1040x form ) Use your adjusted gross income after applying the NOL deduction to refigure income or deduction items that are based on, or limited to, a percentage of your adjusted gross income. Irs gov 1040x form Refigure the following items. Irs gov 1040x form The special allowance for passive activity losses from rental real estate activities. Irs gov 1040x form Taxable social security and tier 1 railroad retirement benefits. Irs gov 1040x form IRA deductions. Irs gov 1040x form Excludable savings bond interest. Irs gov 1040x form Excludable employer-provided adoption benefits. Irs gov 1040x form The student loan interest deduction. Irs gov 1040x form The tuition and fees deduction. Irs gov 1040x form   If more than one of these items apply, refigure them in the order listed above, using your adjusted gross income after applying the NOL deduction and any previous item. Irs gov 1040x form (Enter your NOL deduction on Form 1045, line 10. Irs gov 1040x form On line 11, using the “After carryback” column, enter your adjusted gross income refigured after applying the NOL deduction and after refiguring any above items. Irs gov 1040x form )   Next, refigure your taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form (On Form 1045, use lines 12 through 15 and the “After carryback” column. Irs gov 1040x form ) Use your refigured adjusted gross income (Form 1045, line 11, using the “After carryback” column) to refigure certain deductions and other items that are based on or limited to a percentage of your adjusted gross income. Irs gov 1040x form Refigure the following items. Irs gov 1040x form The itemized deduction for medical expenses. Irs gov 1040x form The itemized deduction for qualified mortgage insurance premiums. Irs gov 1040x form The itemized deduction for casualty losses. Irs gov 1040x form Miscellaneous itemized deductions subject to the 2% limit. Irs gov 1040x form The overall limit on itemized deductions (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Irs gov 1040x form The phaseout of the deduction for exemptions (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Irs gov 1040x form Qualified motor vehicle tax (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Irs gov 1040x form    Do not refigure the itemized deduction for charitable contributions. Irs gov 1040x form   Finally, use your refigured taxable income (Form 1045, line 15, using the “After carryback” column) to refigure your total tax liability. Irs gov 1040x form Refigure your income tax, your alternative minimum tax, and any credits that are based on or limited by your adjusted gross income (AGI), modified adjusted gross income (MAGI), or tax liability. Irs gov 1040x form (On Form 1045, use lines 16 through 25, and the “After carryback” column. Irs gov 1040x form ) The earned income credit, for example, may be affected by changes to adjusted gross income or the amount of tax (or both) and, therefore, must be recomputed. Irs gov 1040x form If you become eligible for a credit because of the carryback, complete the form for that specific credit (such as the EIC Worksheet) for that year. Irs gov 1040x form   While it is necessary to refigure your income tax, alternative minimum tax, and credits, do not refigure your self-employment tax. Irs gov 1040x form Deducting a Carryforward If you carry forward your NOL to a tax year after the NOL year, list your NOL deduction as a negative figure on the “Other income” line of Form 1040 or Form 1040NR (line 21 for 2013). Irs gov 1040x form Estates and trusts include an NOL deduction on Form 1041 with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a for 2013). Irs gov 1040x form You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL. Irs gov 1040x form Your statement should include a computation showing how you figured the NOL deduction. Irs gov 1040x form If you deduct more than one NOL in the same year, your statement must cover each of them. Irs gov 1040x form Change in Marital Status If you and your spouse were not married to each other in all years involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, only the spouse who had the loss can take the NOL deduction. Irs gov 1040x form If you file a joint return, the NOL deduction is limited to the income of that spouse. Irs gov 1040x form For example, if your marital status changes because of death or divorce, and in a later year you have an NOL, you can carry back that loss only to the part of the income reported on the joint return (filed with your former spouse) that was related to your taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form After you deduct the NOL in the carryback year, the joint rates apply to the resulting taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form Refund limit. Irs gov 1040x form   If you are not married in the NOL year (or are married to a different spouse), and in the carryback year you were married and filed a joint return, your refund for the overpaid joint tax may be limited. Irs gov 1040x form You can claim a refund for the difference between your share of the refigured tax and your contribution toward the tax paid on the joint return. Irs gov 1040x form The refund cannot be more than the joint overpayment. Irs gov 1040x form Attach a statement showing how you figured your refund. Irs gov 1040x form Figuring your share of a joint tax liability. Irs gov 1040x form   There are five steps for figuring your share of the refigured joint tax liability. Irs gov 1040x form Figure your total tax as though you had filed as married filing separately. Irs gov 1040x form Figure your spouse's total tax as though your spouse had also filed as married filing separately. Irs gov 1040x form Add the amounts in (1) and (2). Irs gov 1040x form Divide the amount in (1) by the amount in (3). Irs gov 1040x form Multiply the refigured tax on your joint return by the amount figured in (4). Irs gov 1040x form This is your share of the joint tax liability. Irs gov 1040x form Figuring your contribution toward tax paid. Irs gov 1040x form   Unless you have an agreement or clear evidence of each spouse's contributions toward the payment of the joint tax liability, figure your contribution by adding the tax withheld on your wages and your share of joint estimated tax payments or tax paid with the return. Irs gov 1040x form If the original return for the carryback year resulted in an overpayment, reduce your contribution by your share of the tax refund. Irs gov 1040x form Figure your share of a joint payment or refund by the same method used in figuring your share of the joint tax liability. Irs gov 1040x form Use your taxable income as originally reported on the joint return in steps (1) and (2) above, and substitute the joint payment or refund for the refigured joint tax in step (5). Irs gov 1040x form Change in Filing Status If you and your spouse were married and filed a joint return for each year involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, figure the NOL deduction on a joint return as you would for an individual. Irs gov 1040x form However, treat the NOL deduction as a joint NOL. Irs gov 1040x form If you and your spouse were married and filed separate returns for each year involved in figuring NOL carrybacks and carryovers, the spouse who sustained the loss may take the NOL deduction on a separate return. Irs gov 1040x form Special rules apply for figuring the NOL carrybacks and carryovers of married people whose filing status changes for any tax year involved in figuring an NOL carryback or carryover. Irs gov 1040x form Separate to joint return. Irs gov 1040x form   If you and your spouse file a joint return for a carryback or carryforward year, and were married but filed separate returns for any of the tax years involved in figuring the NOL carryback or carryover, treat the separate carryback or carryover as a joint carryback or carryover. Irs gov 1040x form Joint to separate returns. Irs gov 1040x form   If you and your spouse file separate returns for a carryback or carryforward year, but filed a joint return for any or all of the tax years involved in figuring the NOL carryover, figure each of your carryovers separately. Irs gov 1040x form Joint return in NOL year. Irs gov 1040x form   Figure each spouse's share of the joint NOL through the following steps. Irs gov 1040x form Figure each spouse's NOL as if he or she filed a separate return. Irs gov 1040x form See How To Figure an NOL , earlier. Irs gov 1040x form If only one spouse has an NOL, stop here. Irs gov 1040x form All of the joint NOL is that spouse's NOL. Irs gov 1040x form If both spouses have an NOL, multiply the joint NOL by a fraction, the numerator of which is spouse A's NOL figured in (1) and the denominator of which is the total of the spouses' NOLs figured in (1). Irs gov 1040x form The result is spouse A's share of the joint NOL. Irs gov 1040x form The rest of the joint NOL is spouse B's share. Irs gov 1040x form Example 1. Irs gov 1040x form Mark and Nancy are married and file a joint return for 2013. Irs gov 1040x form They have an NOL of $5,000. Irs gov 1040x form They carry the NOL back to 2011, a year in which Mark and Nancy filed separate returns. Irs gov 1040x form Figured separately, Nancy's 2013 deductions were more than her income, and Mark's income was more than his deductions. Irs gov 1040x form Mark does not have any NOL to carry back. Irs gov 1040x form Nancy can carry back the entire $5,000 NOL to her 2011 separate return. Irs gov 1040x form Example 2. Irs gov 1040x form Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that both Mark and Nancy had deductions in 2013 that were more than their income. Irs gov 1040x form Figured separately, his NOL is $1,800 and her NOL is $3,000. Irs gov 1040x form The sum of their separate NOLs ($4,800) is less than their $5,000 joint NOL because his deductions included a $200 net capital loss that is not allowed in figuring his separate NOL. Irs gov 1040x form The loss is allowed in figuring their joint NOL because it was offset by Nancy's capital gains. Irs gov 1040x form Mark's share of their $5,000 joint NOL is $1,875 ($5,000 × $1,800/$4,800) and Nancy's is $3,125 ($5,000 − $1,875). Irs gov 1040x form Joint return in previous carryback or carryforward year. Irs gov 1040x form   If only one spouse had an NOL deduction on the previous year's joint return, all of the joint carryover is that spouse's carryover. Irs gov 1040x form If both spouses had an NOL deduction (including separate carryovers of a joint NOL, figured as explained in the previous discussion ), figure each spouse's share of the joint carryover through the following steps. Irs gov 1040x form Figure each spouse's modified taxable income as if he or she filed a separate return. Irs gov 1040x form See Modified taxable income under How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. Irs gov 1040x form Multiply the joint modified taxable income you used to figure the joint carryover by a fraction, the numerator of which is spouse A's modified taxable income figured in (1) and the denominator of which is the total of the spouses' modified taxable incomes figured in (1). Irs gov 1040x form This is spouse A's share of the joint modified taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form Subtract the amount figured in (2) from the joint modified taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form This is spouse B's share of the joint modified taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form Reduce the amount figured in (3), but not below zero, by spouse B's NOL deduction. Irs gov 1040x form Add the amounts figured in (2) and (4). Irs gov 1040x form Subtract the amount figured in (5) from spouse A's NOL deduction. Irs gov 1040x form This is spouse A's share of the joint carryover. Irs gov 1040x form The rest of the joint carryover is spouse B's share. Irs gov 1040x form Example. Irs gov 1040x form Sam and Wanda filed a joint return for 2011 and separate returns for 2012 and 2013. Irs gov 1040x form In 2013, Sam had an NOL of $18,000 and Wanda had an NOL of $2,000. Irs gov 1040x form They choose to carry back both NOLs 2 years to their 2011 joint return and claim a $20,000 NOL deduction. Irs gov 1040x form Their joint modified taxable income (MTI) for 2011 is $15,000, and their joint NOL carryover to 2012 is $5,000 ($20,000 – $15,000). Irs gov 1040x form Sam and Wanda each figure their separate MTI for 2011 as if they had filed separate returns. Irs gov 1040x form Then they figure their shares of the $5,000 carryover as follows. Irs gov 1040x form Step 1. Irs gov 1040x form   Sam's separate MTI $9,000 Wanda's separate MTI + 3,000 Total MTI $12,000 Step 2. Irs gov 1040x form   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's MTI ÷ total MTI ($9,000 ÷ $12,000) × . Irs gov 1040x form 75 Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Step 3. Irs gov 1040x form   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's share of joint MTI − 11,250 Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Step 4. Irs gov 1040x form   Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Wanda's NOL deduction − 2,000 Wanda's remaining share $1,750 Step 5. Irs gov 1040x form   Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Wanda's remaining share + 1,750 Joint MTI to be offset $13,000 Step 6. Irs gov 1040x form   Sam's NOL deduction $18,000 Joint MTI to be offset − 13,000 Sam's carryover to 2012 $5,000 Joint carryover to 2012 $5,000 Sam's carryover − 5,000 Wanda's carryover to 2012 $-0- Wanda's $2,000 NOL deduction offsets $2,000 of her $3,750 share of the joint modified taxable income and is completely used up. Irs gov 1040x form She has no carryover to 2012. Irs gov 1040x form Sam's $18,000 NOL deduction offsets all of his $11,250 share of joint modified taxable income and the remaining $1,750 of Wanda's share. Irs gov 1040x form His carryover to 2012 is $5,000. Irs gov 1040x form Illustrated Form 1045 The following example illustrates how to use Form 1045 to claim an NOL deduction in a carryback year. Irs gov 1040x form It includes a filled-in page 1 of Form 1045. Irs gov 1040x form Example. Irs gov 1040x form Martha Sanders is a self-employed contractor. Irs gov 1040x form Martha's 2013 deductions are more than her 2013 income because of a business loss. Irs gov 1040x form She uses Form 1045 to carry back her NOL 2 years and claim an NOL deduction in 2011. Irs gov 1040x form Her filing status in both years was single. Irs gov 1040x form See the filled-in Form 1045 later. Irs gov 1040x form Martha figures her 2013 NOL on Form 1045, Schedule A (not shown). Irs gov 1040x form (For an example using Form 1045, Schedule A, see Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule A under How To Figure an NOL , earlier.

Irs gov 1040x form On line 10, Martha enters her $10,000 NOL deduction. Irs gov 1040x form Her new adjusted gross income on line 11 is $40,000 ($50,000 − $10,000). Irs gov 1040x form To complete line 12, she must refigure her medical expense deduction using her new adjusted gross income. Irs gov 1040x form Her refigured medical expense deduction is $3,000 [$6,000 − ($40,000 × 7. Irs gov 1040x form 5%)]. Irs gov 1040x form This increases her total itemized deductions to $14,000 [$13,250 + ($3,000 − $2,250)]. Irs gov 1040x form Martha uses her refigured taxable income ($22,300) from line 15, and the tax tables in her 2011 Form 1040 instructions to find her income tax. Irs gov 1040x form She enters the new amount, $2,924, on line 16, and her new total tax liability, $9,044, on line 25. Irs gov 1040x form Martha used up her $10,000 NOL in 2011 so she does not complete a column for the first preceding tax year ended 12/31/2012. Irs gov 1040x form The decrease in tax because of her NOL deduction (line 27) is $1,612. Irs gov 1040x form Martha files Form 1045 after filing her 2013 return, but no later than December 31, 2014.

Irs gov 1040x form Form 1045, page 1 How To Figure an NOL Carryover If your NOL is more than your taxable income for the year to which you carry it (figured before deducting the NOL), you may have an NOL carryover. Irs gov 1040x form You must make certain modifications to your taxable income to determine how much NOL you will use up in that year and how much you can carry over to the next tax year. Irs gov 1040x form Your carryover is the excess of your NOL deduction over your modified taxable income for the carryback or carryforward year. Irs gov 1040x form If your NOL deduction includes more than one NOL, apply the NOLs against your modified taxable income in the same order in which you incurred them, starting with the earliest. Irs gov 1040x form Modified taxable income. Irs gov 1040x form   Your modified taxable income is your taxable income figured with the following changes.

Irs gov 1040x form In 2013, she has an NOL of $36,000 that she carries back to 2011. Irs gov 1040x form She has no other carrybacks or carryforwards to 2011. Irs gov 1040x form Ida's adjusted gross income in 2011 was $35,000, consisting of her salary of $36,000 minus a $1,000 capital loss deduction. Irs gov 1040x form She is single and claimed only one personal exemption of $3,700. Irs gov 1040x form During that year, she gave $1,450 in charitable contributions. Irs gov 1040x form Her medical expenses were $3,000. Irs gov 1040x form She also deducted $1,650 in taxes and $3,125 in home mortgage interest. Irs gov 1040x form Her deduction for charitable contributions was not limited because her contributions, $1,450, were less than 50% of her adjusted gross income. Irs gov 1040x form The deduction for medical expenses was limited to expenses over 7. Irs gov 1040x form 5% of adjusted gross income (. Irs gov 1040x form 075 × $35,000 = $2,625; $3,000 − $2,625 = $375). Irs gov 1040x form The deductions for taxes and home mortgage interest were not subject to any limits. Irs gov 1040x form She was able to claim $6,600 ($1,450 + $375 + $1,650 + $3,125) in itemized deductions and a personal exemption deduction of $3,700 for 2011. Irs gov 1040x form She had no other deductions in 2011 (except the NOL deduction). Irs gov 1040x form Her taxable income (figured without the NOL deduction) for the year was $24,700. Irs gov 1040x form Ida's adjusted gross income in 2012 was $9,325, consisting of net business income from the clothing shop of $12,325 and a net capital loss of $3,000. Irs gov 1040x form She did not itemize her deductions in 2012. Irs gov 1040x form She deducted the standard deduction of $5,950 and the personal exemption deduction of $3,800. Irs gov 1040x form She had no other deductions in 2012 (other than the NOL deduction). Irs gov 1040x form Her taxable income, therefore, was ($425).
