Yes. Alabama’s net operating loss carry forward provision began with net operating losses incurred during a tax year beginning on or after January 1, 1984. Prior to this period Alabama did not have a net operating loss provision. A net operating loss incurred during a tax year beginning on or after January 1, 1984 and before January 1, 1985 can be carried forward 5 years. A loss from a tax year beginning on or after January 1, 1985 can be carried forward 15 years. For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 1985 and before January 1, 1990, the net operating loss deduction was limited to $600,000 per year.


NOTE: For all tax periods beginning during calendar year 2001, Section 40-18-35.1 (Act 2001-1088 (HB2)) suspends net operating losses.
