carry forward loss without a NOL?
I had a $10,000 loss last year from a new business I started in 2013. However I had $32,000 in w2 income in 2013. My deductions were $45k that year though, so the loss didn't 'help' because my taxes were already zero.
Next year I expect to make a significant profit from the new business - is there any way to 'carry forward' the $10,000 loss? Note I have consistent w2 earnings, so I have never had a net operating loss.
