EFO00051 09-18-2023 Page 3 of 3 Form 56 — Instructions Net Operating Loss Schedule General Instructions A net operating loss (NOL) occurs when the amount of Idaho taxable income, after making modifications, is less than zero. Idaho calculates the Idaho NOL differently than the federal NOL, so you always must add back the NOL claimed on your federal income tax return. Idaho allows a deduction to individuals, C corporations, trusts, and estates. S corporations and partnerships aren’t allowed an NOL deduction. Instead, any losses pass through to the shareholders and partners. You can use an NOL by deducting it from your income in another year or years. A net operating loss calculated by an affected business entity (ABE) may not be passed through to its member, but may be carried forward as an Idaho net operating loss to succeeding taxable years for which the ABE elects to be subject to tax as an ABE. If the ABE does not make an ABE election in any succeeding taxable year, the unused Idaho net operating loss will flow through to the members. Include Form 56 or your own schedule with the return for any year you compute an NOL. Also, include Form 56A showing the NOL carryforward/ carryback calculation, if applicable. Specific Instructions Calculation of Idaho NOL Complete lines 1 through 8 to compute and use your Idaho NOL. Corporations—skip lines 3 through 5. Trusts, estates, and ABEs—skip lines 4 and 5. An absorption year is the year you use the NOL to offset your income. An NOL year is the year you incurred a loss. Line 1. The calculation of the Idaho NOL starts with Idaho adjusted income. Enter the Idaho adjusted income (loss).

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.
