How do we know the exact amount of Capital loss from previous year to be carry to this year if we had last year


Recommended Posts

Hi @saeed_bn, If you have net capital gains for the current tax year and would like to utilize net capital losses of prior years to offset the net capital gains, please follow the steps below:

(Available capital losses are shown on the CRA's Notice of Assessment or Notice of Reassessment for the previous taxation year.)

1- On the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select "Interview setup".

2 - On the right-hand side of the screen. Go to the "Carryforward amounts and prior year information" group, check the box for "Losses of prior years, carrybacks" and then click "Next" at the bottom of the page.

3- Return to the "Left side menu on the Interview tab", select "Losses of prior years and carrybacks".

4- On the page appearing on the right, click on the icon of the plus sign "+" located on the right of the line "Net capital losses of other years".

5- On the page entitled "Net capital losses of other years" and enter your net capital losses of previous years.

6- If you wish to limit the amount of capital losses applied to the current year, enter the amount on the last line at the bottom of the page.

Do not forget, you must have had a taxable capital gain that is generated on line 12700 of the federal return.

The program will report the net capital loss on line 25300 of your federal return and on line 290 of the Quebec return.

To see the details of the application of net capital losses, click on the "Tax return" tab and select federal form "Net Capital Losses" and, if applicable, Quebec form "TP-729 - Net Capital Losses".
