Tax Law

In Response to COVID-19, the District of Columbia Limits Net Operating Loss Carryovers

States continue to consider tax legislation to balance their budgets in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. On May 27, 2020, Mayor Muriel Bowser signed D.C. Act 23-326, the Coronavirus Support Emergency Amendment Act of 2020. In part, this act limits net operating loss carryovers. For tax years beginning after December 31, 2017, corporations, unincorporated businesses, and financial institutions will now be allowed only an 80% deduction for their D.C. net operating loss carryovers.
