Question

Why isn't the capital loss limited to $3,000 on Form 1041-A, Page 1, line 4?

Answer

The $3,000 is an income tax loss limitation. Because Form 1041-A is an Information Return, this tax limitation is not applicable. The full capital loss prints on Form 1041-A, Page 1, line 4. Because of this, any prior-year carryover showing on Form 1041 is not reflected on Form 1041-A, Page 1, line 4.
