Ruling that, under current tax law, an insurance company that has incurred a net income loss in a given year may charge that loss against its taxable income in a subsequent year. This accounting adjustment may be made provided that the insurance company first offsets its net income loss in a given period against its net income gain in the three preceding years, or thus adopts a loss carry back accounting procedure.
