Filling a Sched 4 on 2017 Corp return and can't figure how to fill in losses for past yearsThere is no data field to enter values for "Current year loss net of carryback"

I need to record accumulating corporate losses each year from 2006 to 2017 (with the exception of 2007 with 0). However, without an input field for "current year loss net of carryback" I cannot seem to enter the yearly losses to accumulate forward.

I also don't understand what the difference between "balance at end of previous year" and "balance at beginning of tax year" is ..since nothing transpires between the end of one year and the beginning of the next. Very confusing, and hardly an easy walk through for a first time novice.

Note: this is for a CORPORATE return. All FAQs seem to relate only to personal taxes.



Please contact our support at 10866-438-8020 and one of our support agents can guide you for entering in the loss, there is not enough information in the question to give you a precise answer.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
