Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi from just answer. I'm PDtax, and can assist.
C corporations with loss carryovers have a few options to get some value from the losses. The first is add some income generating activity.
I know that seems simple enough, but from the owner's perspective, there are more options than just adding income. You could buy a profitable company and merge it into yours, using your losses (subject to limits) to save tax dollars.
You could sell your corporation, for another company to use the losses, again subject to limitations.
Another option might be too take a look at how the company afforded ask those losses. If you had to or want to lend the company money, I can think of a pretty good tax technique.
If you loan your company money, and the company can't pay, under certain circumstances, there company would have a taxable gain of you wrote off the loan. There would be no corporate tax due. You could set it up so that you get a tax writeoff for the loan you can't collect.
This lady suggestion requires adherence to some strict guidelines for business bad debts, so working with your tax pro will be important, but those losses could save you some real $$.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
