I have a small business that has been filing a Schedule C for about 10 years, usually showing a profit on Schedule C (and therefore having tax due).

I was thinking of taking a (tax) year off, but the business will continue to have expenses (depreciation, rent, etc.).

Can I use these expenses on Schedule C in the year I take off to create a loss on Schedule C? Or do I carry them forward? Or do I just lose them?
