What is a Carry-over credit?


You want to know what a carry-over credit is.



AvaTax Update




  • A carry-over credit is a transaction with negative liability that is excluded from its intended filing period.
    • This is due to the positive tax liability not being great enough to apply the credit without filing a negative tax return.
  • This will be applied on the next month were the liability exceeds the credit.
