Effective for tax periods beginning on or after January 1, 2020, a net operating loss is applied to the first taxable year to which it may be carried and deducted only during the 15 consecutive tax years immediately following the tax year in which it arose.
Effective, for tax periods prior to January 1, 2020, all financial institution losses will carry back their net operating losses to apply as a deduction against prior income, and to deduct from succeeding years’ income the excess loss. No net operating loss deduction (arising out of a net loss in an earlier or later year) shall be allowed in computing a net operating loss. Casualty losses and losses arising from theft, fraud and embezzlement, however, shall be deductible in computing the net operating loss. A net operating loss for a taxable year may be carried back two years, then forward to the eight succeeding taxable years in chronological order. A successor financial institution shall be allowed to carry over and deduct from succeeding years’ income, the net operating loss of its predecessor.
