File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free If you carry more than one NOL to the same year, your NOL deduction is the total of these carrybacks and carryovers. File back taxes for free NOL resulting in no taxable income. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free Deducting a Carryback If you carry back your NOL, you can use either Form 1045 or Form 1040X. File back taxes for free You can get your refund faster by using Form 1045, but you have a shorter time to file it. File back taxes for free You can use Form 1045 to apply an NOL to all carryback years. File back taxes for free If you use Form 1040X, you must use a separate Form 1040X for each carryback year to which you apply the NOL. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free Use a copy of the appropriate year's Form 1041, check the “Amended return” box, and follow the Form 1041 instructions for amended returns. File back taxes for free Include the NOL deduction with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a). File back taxes for free Also, see the special procedures for filing an amended return due to an NOL carryback, explained under Form 1040X , later. File back taxes for free Form 1045.

File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free 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.

File back taxes for free (On Form 1045, use lines 16 through 25, and the “After carryback” column. File back taxes for free ) 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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free   While it is necessary to refigure your income tax, alternative minimum tax, and credits, do not refigure your self-employment tax. File back taxes for free 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). File back taxes for free Estates and trusts include an NOL deduction on Form 1041 with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a for 2013). File back taxes for free You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL. File back taxes for free Your statement should include a computation showing how you figured the NOL deduction. File back taxes for free If you deduct more than one NOL in the same year, your statement must cover each of them. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free If you file a joint return, the NOL deduction is limited to the income of that spouse. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free After you deduct the NOL in the carryback year, the joint rates apply to the resulting taxable income. File back taxes for free Refund limit. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free The refund cannot be more than the joint overpayment. File back taxes for free Attach a statement showing how you figured your refund. File back taxes for free Figuring your share of a joint tax liability. File back taxes for free   There are five steps for figuring your share of the refigured joint tax liability. File back taxes for free Figure your total tax as though you had filed as married filing separately. File back taxes for free Figure your spouse's total tax as though your spouse had also filed as married filing separately. File back taxes for free Add the amounts in (1) and (2). File back taxes for free Divide the amount in (1) by the amount in (3). File back taxes for free Multiply the refigured tax on your joint return by the amount figured in (4). File back taxes for free This is your share of the joint tax liability. File back taxes for free Figuring your contribution toward tax paid. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free If the original return for the carryback year resulted in an overpayment, reduce your contribution by your share of the tax refund. File back taxes for free Figure your share of a joint payment or refund by the same method used in figuring your share of the joint tax liability. File back taxes for free 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). File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free However, treat the NOL deduction as a joint NOL. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free Separate to joint return. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free Joint to separate returns. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free Joint return in NOL year. File back taxes for free   Figure each spouse's share of the joint NOL through the following steps. File back taxes for free Figure each spouse's NOL as if he or she filed a separate return. File back taxes for free See How To Figure an NOL , earlier. File back taxes for free If only one spouse has an NOL, stop here. File back taxes for free All of the joint NOL is that spouse's NOL. File back taxes for free 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). File back taxes for free The result is spouse A's share of the joint NOL. File back taxes for free The rest of the joint NOL is spouse B's share. File back taxes for free Example 1. File back taxes for free Mark and Nancy are married and file a joint return for 2013. File back taxes for free They have an NOL of $5,000. File back taxes for free They carry the NOL back to 2011, a year in which Mark and Nancy filed separate returns. File back taxes for free Figured separately, Nancy's 2013 deductions were more than her income, and Mark's income was more than his deductions. File back taxes for free Mark does not have any NOL to carry back. File back taxes for free Nancy can carry back the entire $5,000 NOL to her 2011 separate return. File back taxes for free Example 2. File back taxes for free Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that both Mark and Nancy had deductions in 2013 that were more than their income. File back taxes for free Figured separately, his NOL is $1,800 and her NOL is $3,000. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free The loss is allowed in figuring their joint NOL because it was offset by Nancy's capital gains. File back taxes for free 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). File back taxes for free Joint return in previous carryback or carryforward year. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free Figure each spouse's modified taxable income as if he or she filed a separate return. File back taxes for free See Modified taxable income under How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. File back taxes for free 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). File back taxes for free This is spouse A's share of the joint modified taxable income. File back taxes for free Subtract the amount figured in (2) from the joint modified taxable income. File back taxes for free This is spouse B's share of the joint modified taxable income. File back taxes for free Reduce the amount figured in (3), but not below zero, by spouse B's NOL deduction. File back taxes for free Add the amounts figured in (2) and (4). File back taxes for free Subtract the amount figured in (5) from spouse A's NOL deduction. File back taxes for free This is spouse A's share of the joint carryover. File back taxes for free The rest of the joint carryover is spouse B's share. File back taxes for free Example. File back taxes for free Sam and Wanda filed a joint return for 2011 and separate returns for 2012 and 2013. File back taxes for free In 2013, Sam had an NOL of $18,000 and Wanda had an NOL of $2,000. File back taxes for free They choose to carry back both NOLs 2 years to their 2011 joint return and claim a $20,000 NOL deduction. File back taxes for free 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). File back taxes for free Sam and Wanda each figure their separate MTI for 2011 as if they had filed separate returns. File back taxes for free Then they figure their shares of the $5,000 carryover as follows. File back taxes for free Step 1. File back taxes for free   Sam's separate MTI $9,000 Wanda's separate MTI + 3,000 Total MTI $12,000 Step 2. File back taxes for free   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's MTI ÷ total MTI ($9,000 ÷ $12,000) × . File back taxes for free 75 Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Step 3. File back taxes for free   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's share of joint MTI − 11,250 Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Step 4. File back taxes for free   Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Wanda's NOL deduction − 2,000 Wanda's remaining share $1,750 Step 5. File back taxes for free   Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Wanda's remaining share + 1,750 Joint MTI to be offset $13,000 Step 6. File back taxes for free   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. File back taxes for free She has no carryover to 2012. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free His carryover to 2012 is $5,000. File back taxes for free Illustrated Form 1045 The following example illustrates how to use Form 1045 to claim an NOL deduction in a carryback year.

File back taxes for free On line 10, Martha enters her $10,000 NOL deduction. File back taxes for free Her new adjusted gross income on line 11 is $40,000 ($50,000 − $10,000). File back taxes for free To complete line 12, she must refigure her medical expense deduction using her new adjusted gross income. File back taxes for free Her refigured medical expense deduction is $3,000 [$6,000 − ($40,000 × 7. File back taxes for free 5%)]. File back taxes for free This increases her total itemized deductions to $14,000 [$13,250 + ($3,000 − $2,250)].

File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free Your carryover is the excess of your NOL deduction over your modified taxable income for the carryback or carryforward year. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free Modified taxable income. File back taxes for free   Your modified taxable income is your taxable income figured with the following changes. File back taxes for free You cannot claim an NOL deduction for the NOL carryover you are figuring or for any later NOL.

File back taxes for free In 2013, she has an NOL of $36,000 that she carries back to 2011. File back taxes for free She has no other carrybacks or carryforwards to 2011. File back taxes for free Ida's adjusted gross income in 2011 was $35,000, consisting of her salary of $36,000 minus a $1,000 capital loss deduction. File back taxes for free She is single and claimed only one personal exemption of $3,700. File back taxes for free During that year, she gave $1,450 in charitable contributions. File back taxes for free Her medical expenses were $3,000. File back taxes for free She also deducted $1,650 in taxes and $3,125 in home mortgage interest. File back taxes for free Her deduction for charitable contributions was not limited because her contributions, $1,450, were less than 50% of her adjusted gross income. File back taxes for free The deduction for medical expenses was limited to expenses over 7. File back taxes for free 5% of adjusted gross income (. File back taxes for free 075 × $35,000 = $2,625; $3,000 − $2,625 = $375). File back taxes for free The deductions for taxes and home mortgage interest were not subject to any limits. File back taxes for free 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. File back taxes for free She had no other deductions in 2011 (except the NOL deduction). File back taxes for free Her taxable income (figured without the NOL deduction) for the year was $24,700.

File back taxes for free She had no other deductions in 2012 (other than the NOL deduction). File back taxes for free Her taxable income, therefore, was ($425). File back taxes for free Ida's $36,000 carryback will result in her having 2011 taxable income of zero. File back taxes for free She then completes the column for the second preceding tax year ended 12/31/11 on Form 1045, Schedule B, to figure how much of her NOL she uses up in 2011 and how much she can carry over to 2012.
