Question

How does UltraTax/1120 determine the carryback period to use for the net operating loss of a consolidated group?

Answer

Each member of a consolidated return must enter the carryback period in this field. Enter the same carryback period for all members. If the NOL consists of a combination of regular, eligible, or farming losses, enter the longest carryback period in the Carryback period for net operating loss field.
