Anyone else ever feel like a completely inadequate consultant? I'm struggling with performance quality on this project because I just feel dumb and it demotivates me to really strive to improve.

Hi, all the tax professionals here. I have a question. My client started a business to develop a new formula in year 2013. The business failed and my client decided to abandon the business in year 2019. During year 2013 and 2018, no loss or expenses were claimed on the return. Can he claim all the loss/ expenses on year 2019 return. If yes, what the tax code or regulation can apply to this case? I appreciate your insights.

Just worked a full 10 hours today due to a market research vendor data collection error. So glad I found out Friday afternoon and we have a client check in tomorrow and I was made to redo a week’s worth of analysis and deck building over the weekend. Taking a break, and a drink, for now.
