This course will discuss required Schedules K-2 and K-3 for reporting partners' income, deductions, and credits from foreign activity. Our panel of highly experienced tax specialists will explain each part of each schedule so that tax practitioners can efficiently meet this reporting obligation. They will review the latest requirements and updates relative to these schedules.


Preparing required Schedules K-2 and K-3 continues to be an arduous but necessary task for practitioners. Filed with Form 1065 for partnerships or 1120-S for S corporations, these schedules report international amounts and items allocable to flow-through recipients. For 2023, a domestic filing exception remains for entities meeting specific criteria, including having no or limited foreign activity.

New for 2023 is the reporting of dual consolidated losses, the addition of lines on Part XIII, Foreign Partner's Distributive Share of Deemed Sale Items on Transfer of Partnership Interest, of Schedule K-3. These are used to report additional information for nonresident aliens, foreign trusts, and foreign estates that is needed to complete Schedule P of Form 1040-NR. Practitioners working with flow-through entities must stay abreast of the latest changes to Schedules K-2 and K-3 to properly report foreign flow-through items.

Listen as our panel of international tax experts explains how to complete Schedules K-2 and K-3 and the latest revisions to these schedules.
