Hey! I'm Carter. I'm a CPA and would love to help you out on this.

Yes, there are limitations. They can be very complex and can be very fact specific. I suggest you check out the law where the limitations come from.

You need to look to IRC 382 (https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/26/382). William Mette also provides a great break down on these very complex rules available here: http://www.willamette.com/insights_journal/11/winter_2011_12.pdf

Hope that helps. I can help clarify anything on this for you. IF not, please leave a rating. Thanks!

Here's a quick example:

IRC sections 382 and 383 provide that, where the ownership of a company changes by more than 50 percentage points in any 3-year period, the ability of the company to deduct its tax carryforwards in any future year is limited to the value of the company on the date the 50-percentage point threshold is crossed multiplied by a fluctuating rate that is currently around 4%. In other words, if the value of the company is $1 million at the time of the ownership change, then its ability to use its loss carryforwards is limited to $40,000 per year, no matter how large its carryforward may be.
