Amendment tax return 2012 It includes filled-in pages 1 and 2 of Form 1040 and Form 1045, Schedule A. Amendment tax return 2012 Example. Amendment tax return 2012 Glenn Johnson is in the retail record business. Amendment tax return 2012 He is single and has the following income and deductions on his Form 1040 for 2013. Amendment tax return 2012 See the illustrated Form 1040 , later. Amendment tax return 2012 INCOME   Wages from part-time job $1,225 Interest on savings 425 Net long-term capital gain on sale of real estate used in business 2,000 Glenn's total income $3,650 DEDUCTIONS   Net loss from business (gross income of $67,000 minus expenses of $72,000) $5,000 Net short-term capital loss on sale of stock 1,000 Standard deduction 6,100 Personal exemption 3,900 Glenn's total deductions $16,000 Glenn's deductions exceed his income by $12,350 ($16,000 − $3,650). Amendment tax return 2012 However, to figure whether he has an NOL, certain deductions are not allowed. Amendment tax return 2012 He uses Form 1045, Schedule A, to figure his NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 See the Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule A , later. Amendment tax return 2012 The following items are not allowed on Form 1045, Schedule A.

Amendment tax return 2012   The carryback period for a farming loss is 5 years. Amendment tax return 2012 Only the farming loss portion of the NOL can be carried back 5 years.

Amendment tax return 2012   Any loss from a liability arising from (1) through (4) above can be taken into account as a specified liability loss only if you used an accrual method of accounting throughout the period in which the act (or failure to act) occurred. Amendment tax return 2012 For details, see section 172(f). Amendment tax return 2012 Waiving the 10-year carryback. Amendment tax return 2012   You can choose to figure the carryback period for a specified liability loss without regard to the special 10-year carryback rule. Amendment tax return 2012 To make this choice for 2013 attach to your 2013 income tax return filed by the due date (including extensions) a statement that you are choosing to treat any 2013 specified liability losses without regard to the special 10-year carryback rule. Amendment tax return 2012 If you filed your original return on time but did not file the statement with it, you can make this choice on an amended return filed within 6 months after the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Amendment tax return 2012 Attach a statement to your amended return and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Amendment tax return 2012 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Amendment tax return 2012 Once made, this choice is irrevocable. Amendment tax return 2012 Waiving the Carryback Period You can choose not to carry back your NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 If you make this choice, then you can use your NOL only in the 20-year carryforward period. Amendment tax return 2012 (This choice means you also choose not to carry back any alternative tax NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 ) To make this choice, attach a statement to your original return filed by the due date (including extensions) for the NOL year. Amendment tax return 2012 This statement must show that you are choosing to waive the carryback period under section 172(b)(3). Amendment tax return 2012 If you filed your original return on time but did not file the statement with it, you can make this choice on an amended return filed within 6 months of the due date of the return (excluding extensions). Amendment tax return 2012 Attach a statement to your amended return, and write “Filed pursuant to section 301. Amendment tax return 2012 9100-2” at the top of the statement. Amendment tax return 2012 Once you choose to waive the carryback period, it generally is irrevocable. Amendment tax return 2012 If you choose to waive the carryback period for more than one NOL, you must make a separate choice and attach a separate statement for each NOL year. Amendment tax return 2012 If you do not file this statement on time, you cannot waive the carryback period. Amendment tax return 2012 How To Carry an NOL Back or Forward If you choose to carry back the NOL, you must first carry the entire NOL to the earliest carryback year. Amendment tax return 2012 If your NOL is not used up, you can carry the rest to the next earliest carryback year, and so on. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Start by carrying it to the first tax year after the NOL year. Amendment tax return 2012 If you do not use it up, carry the unused part to the next year. Amendment tax return 2012 Continue to carry any unused part of the NOL forward until the NOL is used up or you complete the 20-year carryforward period. Amendment tax return 2012 Example 1. Amendment tax return 2012 You started your business as a sole proprietor in 2013 and had a $42,000 NOL for the year. Amendment tax return 2012 No part of the NOL qualifies for the 3-year, 5-year, or 10-year carryback. Amendment tax return 2012 You begin using your NOL in 2011, the second year before the NOL year, as shown in the following chart. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 If you still had an unused 2013 carryforward after the year 2033, you would not be allowed to deduct it. Amendment tax return 2012 Example 2. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 You begin using the $4,000 in 2010. Amendment tax return 2012 As shown in the following chart, $3,000 of this NOL is used in 2010. Amendment tax return 2012 The remaining $1,000 is carried to 2011 with the $38,000 NOL that you must begin using in 2011. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 If you carry more than one NOL to the same year, your NOL deduction is the total of these carrybacks and carryovers. Amendment tax return 2012 NOL resulting in no taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Deducting a Carryback If you carry back your NOL, you can use either Form 1045 or Form 1040X. Amendment tax return 2012 You can get your refund faster by using Form 1045, but you have a shorter time to file it. Amendment tax return 2012 You can use Form 1045 to apply an NOL to all carryback years. Amendment tax return 2012 If you use Form 1040X, you must use a separate Form 1040X for each carryback year to which you apply the NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Use a copy of the appropriate year's Form 1041, check the “Amended return” box, and follow the Form 1041 instructions for amended returns. Amendment tax return 2012 Include the NOL deduction with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a). Amendment tax return 2012 Also, see the special procedures for filing an amended return due to an NOL carryback, explained under Form 1040X , later. Amendment tax return 2012 Form 1045. Amendment tax return 2012   You can apply for a quick refund by filing Form 1045. Amendment tax return 2012 This form results in a tentative adjustment of tax in the carryback year. Amendment tax return 2012 See the Illustrated Form 1045 . Amendment tax return 2012 at the end of this discussion. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Form 1040X. Amendment tax return 2012   If you do not file Form 1045, you can file Form 1040X to get a refund of tax because of an NOL carryback. Amendment tax return 2012 File Form 1040X within 3 years after the due date, including extensions, for filing the return for the NOL year. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012   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 . Amendment tax return 2012 Refiguring your tax. Amendment tax return 2012   To refigure your total tax liability for a carryback year, first refigure your adjusted gross income for that year. Amendment tax return 2012 (On Form 1045, use lines 10 and 11 and the “After carryback” column for the applicable carryback year. Amendment tax return 2012 ) 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Refigure the following items. Amendment tax return 2012 The special allowance for passive activity losses from rental real estate activities. Amendment tax return 2012 Taxable social security and tier 1 railroad retirement benefits. Amendment tax return 2012 IRA deductions. Amendment tax return 2012 Excludable savings bond interest. Amendment tax return 2012 Excludable employer-provided adoption benefits. Amendment tax return 2012 The student loan interest deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 The tuition and fees deduction. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 (Enter your NOL deduction on Form 1045, line 10. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 )   Next, refigure your taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012 (On Form 1045, use lines 12 through 15 and the “After carryback” column. Amendment tax return 2012 ) 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Refigure the following items. Amendment tax return 2012 The itemized deduction for medical expenses. Amendment tax return 2012 The itemized deduction for qualified mortgage insurance premiums. Amendment tax return 2012 The itemized deduction for casualty losses. Amendment tax return 2012 Miscellaneous itemized deductions subject to the 2% limit. Amendment tax return 2012 The overall limit on itemized deductions (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Amendment tax return 2012 The phaseout of the deduction for exemptions (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Amendment tax return 2012 Qualified motor vehicle tax (do not apply to carryback years beginning after December 31, 2009). Amendment tax return 2012    Do not refigure the itemized deduction for charitable contributions. Amendment tax return 2012   Finally, use your refigured taxable income (Form 1045, line 15, using the “After carryback” column) to refigure your total tax liability. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 (On Form 1045, use lines 16 through 25, and the “After carryback” column. Amendment tax return 2012 ) 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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012   While it is necessary to refigure your income tax, alternative minimum tax, and credits, do not refigure your self-employment tax. Amendment tax return 2012 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). Amendment tax return 2012 Estates and trusts include an NOL deduction on Form 1041 with other deductions not subject to the 2% limit (line 15a for 2013). Amendment tax return 2012 You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 Your statement should include a computation showing how you figured the NOL deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 If you deduct more than one NOL in the same year, your statement must cover each of them. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 If you file a joint return, the NOL deduction is limited to the income of that spouse. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 After you deduct the NOL in the carryback year, the joint rates apply to the resulting taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012 Refund limit. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 The refund cannot be more than the joint overpayment. Amendment tax return 2012 Attach a statement showing how you figured your refund. Amendment tax return 2012 Figuring your share of a joint tax liability. Amendment tax return 2012   There are five steps for figuring your share of the refigured joint tax liability. Amendment tax return 2012 Figure your total tax as though you had filed as married filing separately. Amendment tax return 2012 Figure your spouse's total tax as though your spouse had also filed as married filing separately. Amendment tax return 2012 Add the amounts in (1) and (2). Amendment tax return 2012 Divide the amount in (1) by the amount in (3). Amendment tax return 2012 Multiply the refigured tax on your joint return by the amount figured in (4). Amendment tax return 2012 This is your share of the joint tax liability. Amendment tax return 2012 Figuring your contribution toward tax paid. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 If the original return for the carryback year resulted in an overpayment, reduce your contribution by your share of the tax refund. Amendment tax return 2012 Figure your share of a joint payment or refund by the same method used in figuring your share of the joint tax liability. Amendment tax return 2012 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). Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 However, treat the NOL deduction as a joint NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Separate to joint return. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 Joint to separate returns. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 Joint return in NOL year. Amendment tax return 2012   Figure each spouse's share of the joint NOL through the following steps. Amendment tax return 2012 Figure each spouse's NOL as if he or she filed a separate return. Amendment tax return 2012 See How To Figure an NOL , earlier. Amendment tax return 2012 If only one spouse has an NOL, stop here. Amendment tax return 2012 All of the joint NOL is that spouse's NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 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). Amendment tax return 2012 The result is spouse A's share of the joint NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 The rest of the joint NOL is spouse B's share. Amendment tax return 2012 Example 1. Amendment tax return 2012 Mark and Nancy are married and file a joint return for 2013. Amendment tax return 2012 They have an NOL of $5,000. Amendment tax return 2012 They carry the NOL back to 2011, a year in which Mark and Nancy filed separate returns. Amendment tax return 2012 Figured separately, Nancy's 2013 deductions were more than her income, and Mark's income was more than his deductions. Amendment tax return 2012 Mark does not have any NOL to carry back. Amendment tax return 2012 Nancy can carry back the entire $5,000 NOL to her 2011 separate return. Amendment tax return 2012 Example 2. Amendment tax return 2012 Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that both Mark and Nancy had deductions in 2013 that were more than their income. Amendment tax return 2012 Figured separately, his NOL is $1,800 and her NOL is $3,000. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 The loss is allowed in figuring their joint NOL because it was offset by Nancy's capital gains. Amendment tax return 2012 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). Amendment tax return 2012 Joint return in previous carryback or carryforward year. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Figure each spouse's modified taxable income as if he or she filed a separate return. Amendment tax return 2012 See Modified taxable income under How To Figure an NOL Carryover , later. Amendment tax return 2012 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). Amendment tax return 2012 This is spouse A's share of the joint modified taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012 Subtract the amount figured in (2) from the joint modified taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012 This is spouse B's share of the joint modified taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012 Reduce the amount figured in (3), but not below zero, by spouse B's NOL deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 Add the amounts figured in (2) and (4). Amendment tax return 2012 Subtract the amount figured in (5) from spouse A's NOL deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 This is spouse A's share of the joint carryover. Amendment tax return 2012 The rest of the joint carryover is spouse B's share. Amendment tax return 2012 Example. Amendment tax return 2012 Sam and Wanda filed a joint return for 2011 and separate returns for 2012 and 2013. Amendment tax return 2012 In 2013, Sam had an NOL of $18,000 and Wanda had an NOL of $2,000. Amendment tax return 2012 They choose to carry back both NOLs 2 years to their 2011 joint return and claim a $20,000 NOL deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 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). Amendment tax return 2012 Sam and Wanda each figure their separate MTI for 2011 as if they had filed separate returns. Amendment tax return 2012 Then they figure their shares of the $5,000 carryover as follows. Amendment tax return 2012 Step 1. Amendment tax return 2012   Sam's separate MTI $9,000 Wanda's separate MTI + 3,000 Total MTI $12,000 Step 2. Amendment tax return 2012   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's MTI ÷ total MTI ($9,000 ÷ $12,000) × . Amendment tax return 2012 75 Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Step 3. Amendment tax return 2012   Joint MTI $15,000 Sam's share of joint MTI − 11,250 Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Step 4. Amendment tax return 2012   Wanda's share of joint MTI $3,750 Wanda's NOL deduction − 2,000 Wanda's remaining share $1,750 Step 5. Amendment tax return 2012   Sam's share of joint MTI $11,250 Wanda's remaining share + 1,750 Joint MTI to be offset $13,000 Step 6. Amendment tax return 2012   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. Amendment tax return 2012 She has no carryover to 2012. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 His carryover to 2012 is $5,000. Amendment tax return 2012 Illustrated Form 1045 The following example illustrates how to use Form 1045 to claim an NOL deduction in a carryback year. Amendment tax return 2012 It includes a filled-in page 1 of Form 1045. Amendment tax return 2012 Example. Amendment tax return 2012 Martha Sanders is a self-employed contractor. Amendment tax return 2012 Martha's 2013 deductions are more than her 2013 income because of a business loss. Amendment tax return 2012 She uses Form 1045 to carry back her NOL 2 years and claim an NOL deduction in 2011. Amendment tax return 2012 Her filing status in both years was single. Amendment tax return 2012 See the filled-in Form 1045 later. Amendment tax return 2012 Martha figures her 2013 NOL on Form 1045, Schedule A (not shown). Amendment tax return 2012 (For an example using Form 1045, Schedule A, see Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule A under How To Figure an NOL , earlier. Amendment tax return 2012 ) She enters the $10,000 NOL from Form 1045, Schedule A, line 25, on Form 1045, line 1a. Amendment tax return 2012 Martha completes lines 10 through 25, using the “Before carryback” column under the column for the second preceding tax year ended 12/31/11 on page 1 of Form 1045 using the following amounts from her 2011 return. Amendment tax return 2012 2011 Adjusted gross income $50,000 Itemized deductions:     Medical expenses [$6,000 − ($50,000 × 7. Amendment tax return 2012 5%)] $2,250   State income tax + 2,000   Real estate tax + 4,000   Home mortgage interest + 5,000   Total itemized deductions $13,250 Exemption $3,700 Income tax $4,550 Self-employment tax $6,120   Martha refigures her taxable income for 2011 after carrying back her 2013 NOL as follows: 2011 Adjusted gross income $50,000 Less:     NOL from 2013 −10,000 2011 Adjusted gross income after carryback $40,000 Less:     Itemized deductions:     Medical expenses [$6,000 − ($40,000 × 7. Amendment tax return 2012 5%)] $3,000   State income tax + 2,000   Real estate tax + 4,000   Home mortgage interest + 5,000   Total itemized deductions −14,000 Less:     Exemption − 3,700 2011 Taxable income after carryback $22,300 Martha then completes lines 10 through 25, using the “After carryback” column under the column for the second preceding tax year ended 12/31/11. Amendment tax return 2012 On line 10, Martha enters her $10,000 NOL deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 Her new adjusted gross income on line 11 is $40,000 ($50,000 − $10,000). Amendment tax return 2012 To complete line 12, she must refigure her medical expense deduction using her new adjusted gross income. Amendment tax return 2012 Her refigured medical expense deduction is $3,000 [$6,000 − ($40,000 × 7. Amendment tax return 2012 5%)]. Amendment tax return 2012 This increases her total itemized deductions to $14,000 [$13,250 + ($3,000 − $2,250)]. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 She enters the new amount, $2,924, on line 16, and her new total tax liability, $9,044, on line 25. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 The decrease in tax because of her NOL deduction (line 27) is $1,612. Amendment tax return 2012 Martha files Form 1045 after filing her 2013 return, but no later than December 31, 2014. Amendment tax return 2012 She mails it to the Internal Revenue Service Center for the place where she lives as shown in the 2013 instructions for Form 1040 and attaches a copy of her 2013 return (including the applicable forms and schedules).

Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Your carryover is the excess of your NOL deduction over your modified taxable income for the carryback or carryforward year. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 Modified taxable income. Amendment tax return 2012   Your modified taxable income is your taxable income figured with the following changes. Amendment tax return 2012 You cannot claim an NOL deduction for the NOL carryover you are figuring or for any later NOL. Amendment tax return 2012 You cannot claim a deduction for capital losses in excess of your capital gains. Amendment tax return 2012 Also, you must increase your taxable income by the amount of any section 1202 exclusion. Amendment tax return 2012 You cannot claim the domestic production activities deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 You cannot claim a deduction for your exemptions for yourself, your spouse, or dependents. Amendment tax return 2012 You must figure any item affected by the amount of your adjusted gross income after making the changes in (1), (2), and (3), above, and certain other changes to your adjusted gross income that result from (1), (2), and (3). Amendment tax return 2012 This includes income and deduction items used to figure adjusted gross income (for example, IRA deductions), as well as certain itemized deductions. Amendment tax return 2012 To figure a charitable contribution deduction, do not include deductions for NOL carrybacks in the change in (1) but do include deductions for NOL carryforwards from tax years before the NOL year. Amendment tax return 2012   Your taxable income as modified cannot be less than zero. Amendment tax return 2012 Form 1045, Schedule B. Amendment tax return 2012   You can use Form 1045, Schedule B, to figure your modified taxable income for carryback years and your carryover from each of those years. Amendment tax return 2012 Do not use Form 1045, Schedule B, for a carryforward year. Amendment tax return 2012 If your 2013 return includes an NOL deduction from an NOL year before 2013 that reduced your taxable income to zero (to less than zero, if an estate or trust), see NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014 , later. Amendment tax return 2012 Illustrated Form 1045, Schedule B The following example illustrates how to figure an NOL carryover from a carryback year. Amendment tax return 2012 It includes a filled-in Form 1045, Schedule B. Amendment tax return 2012 Example. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida Brown runs a small clothing shop. Amendment tax return 2012 In 2013, she has an NOL of $36,000 that she carries back to 2011. Amendment tax return 2012 She has no other carrybacks or carryforwards to 2011. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida's adjusted gross income in 2011 was $35,000, consisting of her salary of $36,000 minus a $1,000 capital loss deduction. Amendment tax return 2012 She is single and claimed only one personal exemption of $3,700. Amendment tax return 2012 During that year, she gave $1,450 in charitable contributions. Amendment tax return 2012 Her medical expenses were $3,000. Amendment tax return 2012 She also deducted $1,650 in taxes and $3,125 in home mortgage interest. Amendment tax return 2012 Her deduction for charitable contributions was not limited because her contributions, $1,450, were less than 50% of her adjusted gross income. Amendment tax return 2012 The deduction for medical expenses was limited to expenses over 7. Amendment tax return 2012 5% of adjusted gross income (. Amendment tax return 2012 075 × $35,000 = $2,625; $3,000 − $2,625 = $375). Amendment tax return 2012 The deductions for taxes and home mortgage interest were not subject to any limits. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 She had no other deductions in 2011 (except the NOL deduction). Amendment tax return 2012 Her taxable income (figured without the NOL deduction) for the year was $24,700. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 She did not itemize her deductions in 2012. Amendment tax return 2012 She deducted the standard deduction of $5,950 and the personal exemption deduction of $3,800. Amendment tax return 2012 She had no other deductions in 2012 (other than the NOL deduction). Amendment tax return 2012 Her taxable income, therefore, was ($425). Amendment tax return 2012 Ida's $36,000 carryback will result in her having 2011 taxable income of zero. Amendment tax return 2012 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. Amendment tax return 2012 She completes the column for the first preceding tax year ended 12/31/12. Amendment tax return 2012 See the illustrated Form 1045, Schedule B , shown later. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 1. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida enters $36,000, her 2013 net operating loss, on line 1. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 2. Amendment tax return 2012 She enters $24,700, her 2011 taxable income (figured without the NOL deduction), on line 2. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 3. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida enters her net capital loss deduction of $1,000 on line 3. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, lines 4 and 5. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida had no section 1202 exclusion or domestic production activities deduction in 2011. Amendment tax return 2012 She enters zero on lines 4 and 5. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 6. Amendment tax return 2012 Although Ida's entry on line 3 modifies her adjusted gross income, that does not affect any other items included in her adjusted gross income. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida enters zero on line 6. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 7. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida had itemized deductions and entered $1,000 on line 3, so she completes lines 11 through 38 to figure her adjustment to itemized deductions. Amendment tax return 2012 On line 7, she enters the total adjustment from line 38. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 8. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida enters the deduction for her personal exemption of $3,700 for 2011. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 9. Amendment tax return 2012 After combining lines 2 through 8, Ida's modified taxable income is $29,475. Amendment tax return 2012 Column 1, line 10. Amendment tax return 2012 Ida figures her carryover to 2012 by subtracting her modified taxable income (line 9) from her NOL deduction (line 1). Amendment tax return 2012 She enters the $6,525 carryover on line 10. Amendment tax return 2012 She also enters the $6,525 as her NOL deduction for 2012 on Form 1045, page 1, line 10, in the “After carryback” column under the column for the first preceding tax year ended 12/31/12.
