Limitation on Net Operating Losses in 2018
Thursday, January 4, 2018

According to the newly enacted tax law, corporate Net Operating Losses will be limited for losses occurring AFTER 2017. The deduction is limited to 80% of the taxpayer’s taxable income.

If the law were in effect today, we were wondering which firms would be impacted. Keep in mind that these firms are not currently impacted, but could be for the 2018 tax year.

  • Get two metrics
    • Earnings before tax (EBT)
    • Deferred Tax Assets – Net Operating Losses (NOL)
  • Create the flag. If NOL greater than 80% of EBT, losses could be limited.
  • Without further ado, here’s the data :
