NPVAdvisor :

Hi, I'm not sure I completely understand ... the compensation would already be a part of that loss (part of what created the loss)

NPVAdvisor :

The 179, compensation and all othr expenses are a part of the loss, anc as a C-Corp can be carried forward

NPVAdvisor :

See this:

NPVAdvisor :
(a) In general. Under section 179(b)(3)(B), a taxpayer may carry forward for an unlimited number of years the amount of any cost of section 179 property elected to be expensed in a taxable year but disallowed as a deduction in that taxable year because of the taxable income limitation of section 179(b)(3)(A) and § 1.179-2(c) (“carryover of disallowed deduction”). This carryover of disallowed deduction may be deducted under section 179(a) and § 1.179-1(a) in a future taxable year as provided in paragraph (b) of this section.

(b) Deduction of carryover of disallowed deduction— (1) In general. The amount allowable as a deduction under section 179(a) and § 1.179-1(a) for any taxable year is increased by the lesser of—

(i) The aggregate amount disallowed under section 179(b)(3)(A) and § 1.179-2(c) for all prior taxable years (to the extent not previously allowed as a deduction by reason of this section); or

(ii) The amount of any unused section 179 expense allowance for the taxable year (as described in paragraph (c) of this section).
NPVAdvisor :

Make sense?

NPVAdvisor :

I still don't see you coming into the chat here ... I'll move us to the "Q&A" mode ... maybe that will help ... (We can still continue our dialogue there, just not in real-time as we can here)

NPVAdvisor :

Let me know if we're on the same page

To clarify, an "S" Corporation can only utilize the Section '179' deduction to zero out pass thru income on Form 1120S. However, the Section 179 deduction can result in the S Corp having a pass thru loss if the deduction is less than the Officer's Compensation, which is disregarded for purposes of determining the '179' deduction. I just wanted to confirm if this was the case with a 'C' Corporation


I understand, but it is not.

Because the C-Corp is not a pass-through, it's all corporate income or loss at the corporations tax rate and can be carried forward.

Scott,

I think we have another question out there that we've left hanging (inless you are potentially a different Scott).

Either way, just let that one go and say "FOR LANE ONLY," at the beginning of a separate one, and if you want to have some continuity, just paste the original into the new question, and we'll let the other one time out.

Thanks again,
Lane
