Mastering the Rules for Deducting Business Losses in a Post-Covid World: Overview of Income Tax Limitations
Business losses are subject to several limitations. In response to the 2020 pandemic, businesses or their owners may carry 2018, 2019, and 2020 losses back five years and get tax refunds. In his exclusive LISI Webinar, Steve Gorin will go through a “big picture” review of the net operating loss (NOL), basis, at-risk, and passive loss limitations and how they affect income and self-employment tax. The review will include whether taxpayers benefit from deducting losses currently or suspending them until they have higher earnings. Steve will also briefly discuss other doctrines under which taxpayers might get refunds relating to income reported in prior years that, on hindsight, should not have been taxed.
Attendees will learn:
· How the net operating loss (NOL), basis, at-risk, and passive loss limitations work generally and relate to each other
· How these limitations interact with self-employment tax, in light of a 2020 Chief Counsel Advice
· That taking a loss immediately is not always the best strategy
· Opportunities to time when one deducts a loss from an S corporation
