Did your son report a business loss in 2007 or was this just a loss on his individual personal taxes?
Hello again JA Guest,
Unfortunately losses on an individual's tax return cannot be carried forward to future tax years. Any deductions which you claim in any given year only reduce your taxable income, but not below zero, and the excess deductions are unfortunately not applied to future tax years.
