FORM ATTACHED TO FACE OF LOSS YEAR RETURN FURTHER REDUCES PROCESSING TIME ON REFUNDS. C . Recomputation of Tax Liability. - To arrive at the decrease in t ax previously determined , recompute such tax after taking the carryinto account. For carry-back deduction, see item D. Generally, a net operating loss (NOL) must be carried back (if applicable) and forward in the procedural sequence of taxable periods provided by Section 172 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as defined in Code Section 48-1-2. For taxable years ending on or before December 31, 2017, generally, the carry-back period is 2 years (with special rules for farmers, etc.) For losses incurred in taxable years ending after December 31, 2017 there is no carry-back (with a 2 year carry-back for farmers) and unlimited carryover. Also, Georgia does not follow the following federal provisions: • Special carry-back rules enacted in 2009. • Special rules relating to Gulf Opportunity Zone public utility casualty losses, I.R.C. Section 1400N(j). • 5 year carry-back of NOLs attributable to Gulf Opportunity Zone losses, I.R.C. Section 1400N(k). • 5 year carry-back of NOLs incurred in the Kansas disaster area after May 3, 2007, I.R.C. Section 1400N(k). • 5 year carry-back of certain disaster losses, I.R.C. Sections 172(b)(1)(J) and 172(j). • The election to deduct public utility property losses attributable to May 4, 2007 Kansas storms and tornadoes in the For losses incurred in taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2018, the net operating loss cannot offset more than 80% of Georgia taxable net income. Certain insurance companies are not subject to the 80% rule and carry-back losses 2 years and forward 20 years. For tax years beginning before January 1, 2005, Georgia did not adopt the five year carry-back and continued to use the two year carry-back (with special rules for farmers and casualty losses) as provided under the old Federal law. An election made with the Internal Revenue Service to relinquish the entire carryback period and forward only is a binding election with Georgia. The quick refund is limited to the tax decrease which results from the net loss carry-back deductions. Items must be into account only to the extent that they were reported in the return or were reflected in amounts assessed (or collected without assessment) as deficiencies or in amount which were abated, credited, refunded, or otherwise repaid, prior to the date of filing this application. I n general, the tax previously determined will be the tax shown on the return as filed with the possible exceptions D (1). Computation of Net Operating Loss Carry-Back Deduction. - The net operating loss to be carried back is the Georgia taxable income (loss) modified by any adjustments requi red by t he Internal Revenue Code of 1986. If adjustments to the Georgia taxable income (loss) are required by Section 172, a separate schedule of explanation must be attached. Provision for net operating loss carry-back is made in Regulation 560-7-3-.06. The provisions of IRC Sections 108, 381, 382 and 384 generally also apply for Georgia purposes, see Regulation 560-7-3-.06 for exceptions and more information. D (2). Capital Loss Carry-Back Deduction. - A net capital loss carry-back is available under the general rules and regulations of Section 1212 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 in the event the carry-back deduction adjusts the Georgia taxable income (carried -back to 100% of net capital gain). E.

A decrease of tax determined for a prior year tax will first be credited against any unpaid tax and any remainin balance will be refunded t o taxpayer without interest within the aforesaid 90 day period.

The corporation may, however, file a regular claim for refund on an amended Form 600 at any time before the expiration of th e applicable period of limitation. F.

About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
