The federal tax laws permit taxpayers to use the losses of one year to  offset the profits of other years.  Currently, a company may apply a loss  back 2 years (must apply the loss to the earliest year first).  Any  remaining losses are then carried forward up to 20 years.  A company  may elect to forgo a carryback and just use the loss as a carry forward.   Accounting for Net Operating Losses Accounting for Net Operating Losses Accounting for Net Operating Losses Accounting for Net Operating Losses
