Assessed losses are incurred by a taxpayer when his tax deductions exceed the income that accrues or is received by him in a tax year. Section 20 of the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962 (the Act) allows taxpayers to carry forward the balance of assessed loss from a previous tax year and set it off against the taxpayer's income to determine his taxable income for the year.
