Neil owns stock in two S corporations, Blue and Green. He actively participates in the management of Blue but maintains ownership in Green only as a passive investor.  Neil has no other business investments.  Both Blue and Green anticipate a loss this year, and Neil’s basis in his stock of both corporations is zero. All else equal, if Neil plans on making a capital contribution to at least one of the corporations this year, to which firm should he contribute in order to increase his chances of deducting the loss allocated to him from the entity?  Why?
