Filing your state 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). Filing your state 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). Filing your state taxes for free You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL.

Filing your state taxes for free If you deduct more than one NOL in the same year, your statement must cover each of them. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free If you file a joint return, the NOL deduction is limited to the income of that spouse. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free After you deduct the NOL in the carryback year, the joint rates apply to the resulting taxable income. Filing your state taxes for free Refund limit. Filing your state 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.

Filing your state taxes for free The refund cannot be more than the joint overpayment. Filing your state taxes for free Attach a statement showing how you figured your refund. Filing your state taxes for free Figuring your share of a joint tax liability. Filing your state taxes for free   There are five steps for figuring your share of the refigured joint tax liability. Filing your state taxes for free Figure your total tax as though you had filed as married filing separately. Filing your state taxes for free Figure your spouse's total tax as though your spouse had also filed as married filing separately. Filing your state taxes for free Add the amounts in (1) and (2). Filing your state taxes for free Divide the amount in (1) by the amount in (3). Filing your state taxes for free Multiply the refigured tax on your joint return by the amount figured in (4). Filing your state taxes for free This is your share of the joint tax liability. Filing your state taxes for free Figuring your contribution toward tax paid. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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). Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free However, treat the NOL deduction as a joint NOL. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free Separate to joint return. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free Joint to separate returns. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free Joint return in NOL year. Filing your state taxes for free   Figure each spouse's share of the joint NOL through the following steps. Filing your state taxes for free Figure each spouse's NOL as if he or she filed a separate return. Filing your state taxes for free See How To Figure an NOL , earlier. Filing your state taxes for free If only one spouse has an NOL, stop here. Filing your state taxes for free All of the joint NOL is that spouse's NOL. Filing your state 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). Filing your state taxes for free The result is spouse A's share of the joint NOL. Filing your state taxes for free The rest of the joint NOL is spouse B's share. Filing your state taxes for free Example 1. Filing your state taxes for free Mark and Nancy are married and file a joint return for 2013. Filing your state taxes for free They have an NOL of $5,000. Filing your state taxes for free They carry the NOL back to 2011, a year in which Mark and Nancy filed separate returns. Filing your state taxes for free Figured separately, Nancy's 2013 deductions were more than her income, and Mark's income was more than his deductions. Filing your state taxes for free Mark does not have any NOL to carry back. Filing your state taxes for free Nancy can carry back the entire $5,000 NOL to her 2011 separate return. Filing your state taxes for free Example 2. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free Figured separately, his NOL is $1,800 and her NOL is $3,000. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free The loss is allowed in figuring their joint NOL because it was offset by Nancy's capital gains. Filing your state 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). Filing your state taxes for free Joint return in previous carryback or carryforward year. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free Figure each spouse's modified taxable income as if he or she filed a separate return. Filing your state taxes for free See Modified taxable income under How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. Filing your state 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). Filing your state taxes for free This is spouse A's share of the joint modified taxable income. Filing your state taxes for free Subtract the amount figured in (2) from the joint modified taxable income. Filing your state taxes for free This is spouse B's share of the joint modified taxable income. Filing your state taxes for free Reduce the amount figured in (3), but not below zero, by spouse B's NOL deduction. Filing your state taxes for free Add the amounts figured in (2) and (4). Filing your state taxes for free Subtract the amount figured in (5) from spouse A's NOL deduction. Filing your state taxes for free This is spouse A's share of the joint carryover. Filing your state taxes for free The rest of the joint carryover is spouse B's share. Filing your state taxes for free Example. Filing your state taxes for free Sam and Wanda filed a joint return for 2011 and separate returns for 2012 and 2013. Filing your state taxes for free In 2013, Sam had an NOL of $18,000 and Wanda had an NOL of $2,000. Filing your state taxes for free They choose to carry back both NOLs 2 years to their 2011 joint return and claim a $20,000 NOL deduction. Filing your state 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). Filing your state taxes for free Sam and Wanda each figure their separate MTI for 2011 as if they had filed separate returns. Filing your state taxes for free Then they figure their shares of the $5,000 carryover as follows. Filing your state taxes for free Step 1. Filing your state taxes for free   Sam's separate MTI $9,000 Wanda's separate MTI + 3,000 Total MTI $12,000 Step 2.

Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state 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. Filing your state taxes for free She has no carryover to 2012. Filing your state 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.
