The LTC will normally supply information about non-allowable deductions and any other information required to complete your return.
The loss limitation rule limits the amount of deductions an LTC owner (shareholder) can claim if the amount exceeds the owner’s “owner’s basis” (equity) in the LTC.
For the 2018-19 and later income years the loss limitation rule only applies to an LTC which is in a partnership or joint venture which includes another LTC.
For most LTC owners, you can now claim the full amount of your prior years’ non-allowable deductions brought forward this year. This won’t apply if the loss limitation rule continues to apply to limit the amount claimable.

If you have an amount in Box 19D, subtract this from Box 19B and put the total in Box 19E.
