An LLC had a oil driling business until 2016. It then changed to commercial property leasing for 2017 but has some prior year depletion expense carry over. How do you write off that amount in 2016 tax return? I called Intuit and they do not know.

LLC taxed as what? Percentage depletion or cost? Depletion carried over due to what limitation (income at the well level? income at the entity level?)? At the end of 2016(!) did they still have an interest in the leasehold? If not, how was it disposed of (expiration? sale?)

Looks like the answer has more questions than the question 😮

Armpit sniffer. Yup, checked out the help wanted ads and found the job. With my nose, how can I go wrong?
