C:11-47 Post-Termination Loss Use. Stein Corporation, an S corporation, has 400 shares of stock
outstanding. Chuck and Linda own an equal number of these shares, and both actively
participate in Stein’s business. Chuck and Linda each contributed $60,000 when they
organized Stein on September 10, 2008. Start-up losses during 2008 resulted in Stein
reporting a $210,000 ordinary loss. Stein’s activities have since become profitable, and
the corporation voluntarily revokes the S election on March 1, 2009, with no prospective
revocation date being specified. In 2009, Stein reports $360,000 of taxable income
($30,000 per month). Stein makes no distributions to its shareholders in either year.

What happens to any unused portion of the loss?
