A goal of every business is to make a profit; however, losses occur. A net operating loss (NOL) can occur when deductible business expenses and losses exceed gross income. The provisions under §172, Net Operating Loss Deduction, are important because tax professionals increasingly find themselves working with clients who are incurring net operating losses (NOLs). Without a basic understanding of NOLs, tax professionals cannot provide their clients with the best possible tax outcome. In addition to NOLs, the IRS analyzes an NOL under alternative minimum tax rules. This ebook enhances the tax professional’s understanding of NOLs and alternative minimum tax NOLs (ATNOLs). For individuals, the CARES Act made changes to NOLs generated in 2018-2020.
