Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Can you please clarify your question?
Did you file your tax return and carried back your net operating loss and got a refund?
This NOL will be carried forward and used in future years against your income. So you will get the benefit of this NOL in future years.
Generally you must carry back the entire amount of the NOL to the 2 tax years before the NOL year (the carryback period), and then carry forward any remaining NOL for up to 20 years after the NOL year (the carryforward period).
Cashing in IRA will result in early withdrawal penalty of 10% if you are under 59 1/2 years. You may not owe any income tax as you could use your NOL but the penalty amount will apply.
Let me know if you have any question.

It will be treated as Net Operating Loss.
The carry forward of your NOL to a tax year after the NOL year, will be listed as a negative figure on the Other income line of Form 1040 (line 21).
You must attach a statement that shows all the important facts about the NOL. Your statement should include a computation showing how you figured the NOL deduction.
