Chart 5 - Applying net capital losses of other years to 2018 (for taxpayers with a pre-1986 capital loss balance)

Note

The CRA offers a printer-friendly version of this chart that is identical to the one in the .pdf version of the Capital Gains guide.

Use this chart to apply your net capital losses of other years to 2018 and to calculate your balance of unapplied losses you can carry forward to a future year.

When you complete this chart, replace "IR" with your inclusion rate for 2000. This rate is from line 16 in Part 4 of Schedule 3 for 2000, or from your notice of assessment or latest notice of reassessment for 2000.

Step 1 - Pre-1986 capital loss balance available for 2018
Complete this step only if you have a balance of unapplied net capital losses from before May 23, 1985. Otherwise, enter "0" on line 3 and go to Step 2.

If you did not complete Step 1, enter the amount from line 7 on line 253 of your 2018 income tax and benefit return. This is your deduction in 2018 for net capital losses of other years. Do not complete lines 8 to 15 and enter this same amount on line 16 in Step 3. However, complete lines D to G in Step 3 of this table to calculate the net capital losses available to carry forward to future years.

If you completed Step 1, complete lines 8 to 16 and lines D to G in Step 3 of this table to calculate the net capital losses available to carry forward to future years.
