Did you report the S Corp (with loss) as a passive activity - you may want to review your entries in Turbo-tax with specific regard to all the questions you answered in the process. It is possible that you may have checked the box that "All the basis/investment is not at risk" or that the basis is not sufficient.

Normally you are allowed loss to the extent of your basis and loan in the S Corp.
