K-1 (1065) Publicly Traded Partnership Loss

Recommended Posts

I prepare only one 1041 for a client who normally only has 1099-Int and 1099-Div income. In 2010 he invested in a PTP as a domestic / limited partner.

Box 1 Ordinary Business Loss =(119)

Box 5 Interest = 5

Box 6a Ordinary Dividends = 4

Box 11 C Other Income (loss) = (3,829) - this flows to 6781 and on to Sch D.

Box 11 F* Other Income (loss) = (4,910) - ??? I don't know where this is to go.

* Partner instructions attached = "Under Temporary Treasury Regulations section 1.469-1T(e)(6), non of teh distributive share items reported to you on the K-1 are considered to be derived from a passive activity. Other Income, Box 11 Code F - Net Ordinary Income (loss) from Swaps.

He has a beginning capital balance of 27,751 and an ending 18,902 as a result of the overall 2010 loss of (8,849) identified above.

Any guidance in how this loss should be treated would be greatly appreciated.

Two things, one of which you have already probably done. Read the instructions and explanations for 11F in the Partner's instructions for the K-1. Secondly, try this website to see if the Partnership's tax package is there. If it is, there "should be" a guide to what goes where and how to handle it. I sorry I can't be more help.

Perfect, thank you. I went there, found a link to this particular partnership, and learned what I needed to know. You're right, I did read the instructions and most were posted in my previous comment by the "*" but even though I read them I didn't comprehend them. The website you gave me had a powerful tool that would export the clients specific K-1 info into to each applicable IRS form. I now see it goes on E pt II Line 28 column H. Now I can work on understanding why it goes there. Thanks again, I spent two hours last night reading but getting nowhere. Your web link post really helped.
