Step 11 Work out and show your carry-forward losses
This information may not apply to the current year. Check the content carefully to ensure it is applicable to your circumstances.
End of attention
If the total of your capital losses for the year and unapplied net capital losses from earlier years is greater than your capital gains, you were directed to this step from step 8.
Do not put anything at A on your tax return (supplementary section).
At V item 17 (or V item 9 if you use the tax return for retirees) show the amount by which the total of your capital losses for the year and unapplied net capital losses from earlier years is greater than your capital gains for the year. You carry this amount forward to be applied against later year capital gains.
Example 11: Carry-forward losses
Continuing the example from step 5, if Fred had no other capital losses, he would put $1,125 at V item 17 on his tax return (or at V item 9 if he uses the tax return for retirees). He would leave both A and H blank.
