Hi Customer,

Thanks for your question. The answer is:

b. A $56,000 net operating loss
Income ($230,000 + $120,000)=$350,000
-Expenses (310,000)
-Dividends-received deduction 80% (96,000)
=Taxable income $(56,000)
The full dividends-received deduction is allowed because it creates an NOL.

Hope this helps!
