Can I carry over my prior year loss from my s corporation on

This answer was rated:

Can I carry over my prior year loss from my s corporation on my personal return this year. If yes, in what form or schedule do I report last year loss? FYI I have received K-1 from my S corporation and I trying file schedule E with my personal tax return.

When you received the K-1 for the prior year- the loss would have been included on your prior year personal tax return. presuming you were actively involved in the S Corp and you had basis - this loss would have offset your income in prior year and any excess loss not used will be carried forward on your personal tax return.

 

 

Let me know if you have any question.

I am actively involved in S Corp. In 2008 my comany status was single owner LLC and it had a loss of 26,000; in 2009 I elected to file as S Corp, and I have some net icome from the S Corp that I am going to reprt in my personal tax return. My question is what form or schedule do I need to record the 26,000 loss I had in 2008

$26,000 loss would be reported as net operating loss in 2008 and it must have offset your other income (if you reported as a disregarded entity on Sch C,). Any excess loss would have been carried forward and can be claimed on Form 1040 on " other income" line as NOL and entered as negative item.
