How do I manually adjust a net operating loss deduction in excess of 80% of taxable income without getting an error message?

I havent had any of these yet, but Ive been wondering the same thing.

I have the same issue.  

If you manually calculate the 80% limitation and place in the Carryover absorbed in 2019 input box, the taxable income before NOL (found on 2018 NOL utilization statement) changes to a number that is not the actual taxable income, but the original taxable income plus the absorbed amount.  Also, the change  (which is an override) screws up the 2019 Computation of Taxable Income for NOL utilization statement.

It seems to be a program error.

@IntuitAustin  or @AshleyatIntuit   can you direct us to instructions for making this NOL adjustment?


PS: I thought I saw something about a bill thats been introduced that would get rid that 80% NOL limitation hopefully it would be retroactive and this will have all been a moot point.
