Course Materials

This course will discuss the latest IRS requirements for disclosing information to partners and shareholders on Schedule K-1. Our panel of tax experts will explain how to present attachments clearly and concisely for shareholders and partners of flow-through entities. They will provide examples and practical tips for tax practitioners and businesses struggling with the additional mandatory disclosures on Schedule K-1.


Recent changes have significantly increased the number of footnotes, supporting schedules, and required disclosures for Schedule K-1 for partnerships and S corporations. Some of these disclosures are effective for 2020 and 2021 returns. There is a requirement for many of these disclosures with little guidance on the content of these necessary attachments.

The Section 199A deduction provides a valuable tax benefit for taxpayers. Aggregating non-SSTBs (specified service trade or businesses) is sometimes necessary to take advantage of the deduction. In order for individuals to properly make the election, pass-through entities need to disclose the required information to its partners and shareholders.

All partnerships must now disclose tax basis capital information, including current year increases and decreases. For partnerships not already using the “transactional approach”, there are three additional methods that can be used to calculate beginning tax basis capital.

Even changes that appear to be simple often are not. Page 1 Item E, for entry of the TIN, prohibits the entry of TINs for disregarded entities. This change alone can require a significant time commitment for tax professionals who must determine whether SMLLCs or grantor trusts are partners and then obtain the beneficial owner's underlying tax information.

Many of these disclosures will allow the IRS to flag returns for a more in-depth look, making it imperative for tax practitioners to prepare statements that satisfy requirements and deter the IRS.

Listen as our authoritative panel explains how to meet the latest K-1 reporting requirements, including those for 199A, 163(j), 704(c), negative and tax-basis capital reporting, and other recent additions to Schedule K-1.
