How do I calculate a five-year carryback of a farming loss on Form 1045?


IRS instructions require two Forms 1045 to carry back a farming loss. On Screen 1045-1, enter 5 in the Carryback period field, and enter information for all carryback years on Screen 1045-2.

Note: Per Form 1045 instructions, lines 1 through 9 and Schedule A should only be completed on one Form 1045.
