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.

I got an offer from EY but I’m reading their termination clause and is it true that if you leave you can NEVER have any contact with ANY company that EY has ever done business with? That seems highly restrictive. So if EY has a small 5k side project with a client in another state that you never even touched, and you move on to another firm that has a 2M engagement with that same client - you can’t work on that client? Am I reading that correctly?
