This teleconference will provide tax professionals at multi-state companies with a current awareness briefing on treatment of NOLs in federal and individual state laws and regs. Our panel will also present a practical discussion on navigating associated complications that arise with state combined reporting and nexus.


Properly managing net operating losses and handling carryforward or carrybacks NOLs adeptly is vital and a highly complex activity for federal and state income tax professionals at multi-state companies.

When it comes to federal NOLs, tax specialists must stay current on rules for reporting NOLs, general limits on carryforwards and special limits on carryforwards after an ownership change under Sect. 382. State income tax matches of federal NOL policy change constantly and take myriad directions.

Tax professionals cannot afford to miss on need to know state tax aspects of NOL. State NOL rules generally differ from federal NOL rules, and state NOL rules often differ from one another. This is especially true with respect to carrybacks of NOLs.

Listen as our panel of tax advisors explores the critical approaches that tax professionals at multi-state companies must master with NOLs.
