Illinois Schedule NLD

Has anyone else noticed that the IL Sch NLD is flat wrong for tax year 2007, the proforma to 2008, and tax year 2008?


It appears that this is a known issue in the Lacerte program.

If you go to the Lacerte webpage at and click on Support in the blue bar across the top, then type in "IL Net Loss Carryovers" under the Search the Knowledge Base, there is an article titled "Illinois (IL) Net Loss Carryovers from 1997 to 2006 do not properly proforma from the 2007 Lacerte Tax to the 2008 Lacerte Tax for the Business Modules" that goes over this and how to correct it.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
