yes...if your tax program did not automatically carry these amounts over, you will enter the total into the NOL worksheet. This will reduce the amount you have to pay FIT on,but you will still have to pay the self-employment tax of 15.3%

Yes...I'm sorry, I was helping someone else. You enter this on line 21 as a negative numberIf your tax program has a net operating loss worksheet, use that and it will place the number in the correct box
