NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014(p16)

rule
If you had an NOL deduction carried forward from a year prior to 2013 that resulted in your having taxable income on your 2013 return of zero (of less than zero, if an estate or trust), complete Table 1, Worksheet for NOL Carryover From 2013 to 2014, on the following pages. It will help you figure your NOL to carry to 2014. Keep the worksheet for your records.

Worksheet Instructions(p16)

rule
At the top of the worksheet, enter the NOL year for which you are figuring the carryover.

More than one NOL.(p16)

rule
If your 2013 NOL deduction includes amounts for more than one loss year, complete this worksheet only for one loss year. To determine which year, start with your earliest NOL and subtract each NOL separately from your taxable income figured without the NOL deduction. Complete this worksheet for the earliest NOL that results in your having taxable income below zero. Your NOL carryover to 2014 is the total of the amount on line 10 of the worksheet and all later NOL amounts.

Example.(p16)

Your taxable income for 2013 is $5,000 without your $9,000 NOL deduction. Your NOL deduction includes a $2,000 carryover from 2011 and a $7,000 carryover from 2012. Subtract your 2011 NOL of $2,000 from $5,000. This gives you taxable income of $3,000. Your 2011 NOL is now completely used up. Subtract your $7,000 2012 NOL from $3,000. This gives you taxable income of ($4,000). You now complete the worksheet for your 2012 NOL. Your NOL carryover to 2014 is the unused part of your 2012 NOL from line 10 of the worksheet.

Line 6.(p16)

rule
You must refigure the following income and deductions based on adjusted gross income.
  1. The special allowance for passive activity losses from rental real estate activities.
  2. Taxable social security and tier 1 railroad retirement benefits.
  3. IRA deductions.
  4. Excludable savings bond interest.
  5. Excludable employer-provided adoption benefits.
  6. The student loan interest deduction.
  7. The tuition and fees deduction.
If none of these items apply to you, enter zero on line 6. Otherwise, increase your adjusted gross income by the total of lines 3 through 5 and your NOL deduction for the NOL year entered at the top of the worksheet and later years. Using this increased adjusted gross income, refigure the items that apply, in the order listed above. Your adjustment for each item is the difference between the refigured amount and the amount included on your return. Combine the adjustments for previous items with your adjusted gross income before refiguring the next item. Keep a record of your computations.
Enter your total adjustments for the above items on line 6.

Line 7.(p16)

rule
Enter zero if you claimed the standard deduction or the amounts on lines 3 through 5 are zero. Otherwise, use lines 11 through 33 of the worksheet to figure the amount to enter on this line. Complete only those sections that apply to you.

Estates and trusts.(p16)
Enter zero on line 7 if you did not claim any miscellaneous deductions on Form 1041, line 15c, or a casualty or theft loss. Otherwise, refigure these deductions by substituting modified adjusted gross income (see below) for adjusted gross income. Subtract the recomputed deductions from those claimed on the return. Enter the result on line 7.

Modified adjusted gross income.(p16)
To refigure miscellaneous itemized deductions of an estate or trust (Form 1041, line 15c), modified adjusted gross income is the total of the following amounts.

Line 20.(p16)

rule
Is your modified adjusted gross income from line 13 of this worksheet more than $100,000 ($50,000 if married filing separately)?

No. Your deduction is not limited. Enter the amount from line 19 on line 20 and enter -0- on line 21.

Line 23.(p16)

rule
If you had a contributions carryover from 2012 to 2013 and your NOL deduction includes an amount from an NOL year before 2012, you may have to reduce your contributions carryover. Reduce the contributions carryover by the amount of any adjustment you made to your 2012 charitable contributions deduction when figuring your NOL carryover to 2013. Use the reduced contributions carryover to figure the amount to enter on line 23.
