Form 1040x 2009 9. Form 1040x 2009   Figuring Net Profit or Loss Table of Contents Introduction Net Operating Losses (NOLs) Not-for-Profit Activities Introduction After figuring your business income and expenses, you are ready to figure the net profit or net loss from your business. Form 1040x 2009 You do this by subtracting business expenses from business income. Form 1040x 2009 If your expenses are less than your income, the difference is net profit and becomes part of your income on page 1 of Form 1040. Form 1040x 2009 If your expenses are more than your income, the difference is a net loss. Form 1040x 2009 You usually can deduct it from gross income on page 1 of Form 1040. Form 1040x 2009 But in some situations your loss is limited. Form 1040x 2009 This chapter briefly explains two of those situations. Form 1040x 2009 Other situations that may limit your loss are explained in the Instructions for Schedule C, line G and line 32. Form 1040x 2009 If you have more than one business, you must figure your net profit or loss for each business on a separate Schedule C. Form 1040x 2009 Net Operating Losses (NOLs) If your deductions for the year are more than your income for the year (line 41 of your Form 1040 is a negative number), you may have a net operating loss (NOL). Form 1040x 2009 You can use an NOL by deducting it from your income in another year or years. Form 1040x 2009 Examples of typical losses that may produce an NOL include, but are not limited to, losses incurred from the following. Form 1040x 2009 Your trade or business. Form 1040x 2009 Your work as an employee (unreimbursed employee business expenses). Form 1040x 2009 A casualty or theft. Form 1040x 2009 Moving expenses. Form 1040x 2009 Rental property. Form 1040x 2009 A loss from operating a business is the most common reason for an NOL.

Form 1040x 2009 It explains how to figure an NOL, when to use it, how to claim an NOL deduction, and how to figure an NOL carryover. Form 1040x 2009 Not-for-Profit Activities If you do not carry on your business to make a profit, there is a limit on the deductions you can take. Form 1040x 2009 You cannot use a loss from the activity to offset other income. Form 1040x 2009 Activities you do as a hobby, or mainly for sport or recreation, come under this limit. Form 1040x 2009 For details about not-for-profit activities, see chapter 1 in Publication 535, Business Expenses. Form 1040x 2009 That chapter explains how to determine whether your activity is carried on to make a profit and how to figure the amount of loss you can deduct.
