Specific Instructions

Part III. Shareholder's Share of Current Year Income, Deductions, Credits, and Other Items

The amounts shown in boxes 1 through 17 reflect your share of income, loss, deductions, credits, etc., from corporate business or rental activities without reference to limitations on losses, credits, or other items that may have to be adjusted because of:

  1. The adjusted basis of your stock and debt in the corporation,

  2. The at-risk limitations,

  3. The passive activity limitations, or

  4. Any other limitations that must be taken into account at the shareholder level in figuring taxable income (for example, the section 179 expense limitation).

For information on these provisions, see Limitations on Losses, Deductions, and Credits, earlier.

If you are an individual, and the above limitations do not apply to the amounts shown on your Schedule K-1, take the amounts shown and report them on the lines of your tax return as indicated in the summarized reporting information shown on page 2 of the Schedule K-1. If any of the above limitations apply, adjust the amounts on Schedule K-1 before you report them on your return.

When applicable, the passive activity limitations on losses are applied after the limitations on losses for a shareholder's basis in stock and debt and the shareholder's at-risk amount.

The line numbers in the summarized reporting information on page 2 of Schedule K-1 are references to forms in use for calendar year 2013. If you file your tax return on a calendar year basis, but the corporation files a return for a fiscal year, report the amounts on your tax return for the year in which the corporation's fiscal year ends. For example, if the corporation's tax year ends in February 2014, report the amounts on your 2014 tax return.

If you have losses, deductions, or credits from a prior year that were not deductible or usable because of certain limitations, such as the basis rules or the at-risk limitations, take them into account in determining your income, loss, or credits for this year. However, except for passive activity losses and credits, do not combine the prior year amounts with any amounts shown on this Schedule K-1 to get a net figure to report on your return. Instead, report the amounts on your return on a year-by-year basis.

If you have amounts other than those shown on Schedule K-1 to report on Schedule E (Form 1040), enter each item separately on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28.

Codes.   In box 10 and boxes 12 through 17, the corporation will identify each item by entering a code in the column to the left of the dollar amount entry space. These codes are identified on page 2 of Schedule K-1 and in these instructions.

Attached statements.   The corporation will enter an asterisk (*) after the code, if any, in the column to the left of the dollar amount entry space for each item for which it has attached a statement providing additional information. For those informational items that cannot be reported as a single dollar amount, the corporation will enter an asterisk in the left column and enter “STMT” in the dollar amount entry space to indicate the information is provided on an attached statement.

Income (Loss)

Box 1. Ordinary Business Income (Loss)

The amount reported in box 1 is your share of the ordinary income (loss) from trade or business activities of the corporation. Generally, where you report this amount on Form 1040 depends on whether the amount is from an activity that is a passive activity to you. If you are an individual shareholder filing a 2013 Form 1040, find your situation below and report your box 1 income (loss) as instructed after applying the basis and at-risk limitations on losses. If the corporation had more than one trade or business activity, it will attach a statement identifying the income or loss from each activity.

  1. Report box 1 income (loss) from corporate trade or business activities in which you materially participated on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (h) or (j).

  2. Report box 1 income (loss) from corporate trade or business activities in which you did not materially participate, as follows.

    1. If income is reported in box 1, report the income on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (g).

    2. If a loss is reported in box 1, follow the Instructions for Form 8582 to figure how much of the loss can be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (f).

Box 2. Net Rental Real Estate Income (Loss)

Generally, the income (loss) reported in box 2 is a passive activity amount for all shareholders. However, the income (loss) in box 2 is not from a passive activity if you were a real estate professional (defined earlier) and you materially participated in the activity. If the corporation had more than one rental real estate activity, it will attach a statement identifying the income or loss from each activity.

If you are filing a 2013 Form 1040, use the following instructions to determine where to report a box 2 amount.

  1. If you have a loss from a passive activity in box 2 and you meet all the following conditions, report the loss on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (f).

  4. If you have income from a passive activity in box 2, report the income on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (g).

Box 3. Other Net Rental Income (Loss)

The amount in box 3 is a passive activity amount for all shareholders. If the corporation had more than one rental activity, it will attach a statement identifying the income or loss from each activity. Report the income or loss as follows.

  1. If box 3 is a loss, follow the Instructions for Form 8582 to figure how much of the loss can be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (f).

  2. If income is reported in box 3, report the income on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (g).

  • Report unrecaptured section 1250 gain from the sale or exchange of the corporation's business assets on line 5.

  • Report unrecaptured section 1250 gain from the sale or exchange of an interest in a partnership on line 10.

  • Report unrecaptured section 1250 gain from an estate, trust, regulated investment company (RIC), or real estate investment trust (REIT) on line 11.

If the corporation reports only unrecaptured section 1250 gain from the sale or exchange of its business assets, it will enter a dollar amount in box 8c. If it reports the other two types of unrecaptured gain, it will provide an attached statement that shows the amount for each type of unrecaptured section 1250 gain.

If you have any foreign source unrecaptured section 1250 gain, see the instructions for box 14, later.

Box 9. Net Section 1231 Gain (Loss)

The amount in box 9 is generally passive if it is from a:

  • Rental activity, or

  • Trade or business activity in which you did not materially participate.

However, an amount from a rental real estate activity is not from a passive activity if you were a real estate professional (defined earlier) and you materially participated in the activity.

If the amount is either (a) a loss that is not from a passive activity or (b) a gain, report it on Form 4797, line 2, column (g). Do not complete columns (b) through (f) on line 2 of Form 4797, Sales of Business Property. Instead, enter “From Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S)” across these columns.

If the amount is a loss from a passive activity, see Passive Loss Limitations in the Instructions for Form 4797. Report the loss following the Instructions for Form 8582 to figure how much of the loss is allowed on Form 4797. If the corporation had net section 1231 gain (loss) from more than one activity, it will attach a statement that will identify the section 1231 gain (loss) from each activity.

If you have any foreign source net section 1231 gain (loss), see the instructions for box 14, later.

Box 10. Other Income (Loss)

Code A. Other portfolio income (loss).   The corporation will report portfolio income other than interest, ordinary dividend, royalty, and capital gain (loss) income, and attach a statement to tell you what kind of portfolio income is reported.

  If the corporation held a residual interest in a real estate mortgage investment conduit (REMIC), it will report on the statement your share of REMIC taxable income (net loss) that you report on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 38, column (d). The statement will also report your share of any “excess inclusion” that you report on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 38, column (c), and your share of section 212 expenses that you report on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 38, column (e).

Code B. Involuntary conversions.   This is your net loss from involuntary conversions due to casualty or theft. The corporation will give you a statement that shows the amounts to be reported on Form 4684, Casualties and Thefts, line 34, columns (b)(i), (b)(ii), and (c).

  If there was a gain (loss) from a casualty or theft to property not used in a trade or business or for income-producing purposes, the corporation will provide you with the information you need to complete Form 4684.

  Report loss items that are passive activity amounts to you following the Instructions for Form 8582.

  Code E items may include the following.
  • Income from recoveries of tax benefit items. A tax benefit item is an amount you deducted in a prior tax year that reduced your income tax. Report this amount on Form 1040, line 21, to the extent it reduced your tax in the prior year.

  • Gambling gains and losses.

    1. If the corporation was not engaged in the trade or business of gambling, (a) report gambling winnings on Form 1040, line 21, and (b) deduct gambling losses to the extent of winnings on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 28.

You must figure your gain or loss from the disposition by increasing your share of the adjusted basis by the intangible drilling costs, development costs, or mine exploration costs for the property that you capitalized (that is, costs that you did not elect to deduct under section 59(e)). Report a loss in Part I of Form 4797. Report a gain in Part III of Form 4797 in accordance with the instructions for line 28. See Regulations section 1.1254-4 for details.

  If the corporation provides you with information that the contribution was property other than cash and does not give you a Form 8283, see the Instructions for Form 8283 for filing requirements.

Food inventory contributions.

The corporation will report on an attached statement your share of qualified food inventory contributions. The food inventory contribution is not included in the amount reported in box 12 using code C. The corporation will also report your share of the corporation's net income from the business activities that made the food inventory contribution(s).

Code J. Section 59(e)(2) expenditures.   The corporation will show on an attached statement the type and the amount of qualified expenditures for which you may make a section 59(e) election. The statement will also identify the property for which the expenditures were paid or incurred. If there is more than one type of expenditure, the amount of each type will also be listed.

  If you deduct these expenditures in full in the current year, they are treated as adjustments or tax preference items for purposes of alternative minimum tax. However, you may elect to amortize these expenditures over the number of years in the applicable period rather than deduct the full amount in the current year. If you make this election, these items are not treated as adjustments or tax preference items.

  Under the election, you can deduct circulation expenditures ratably over a 3-year period. Research and experimental expenditures and mining exploration and development costs can be amortized over a 10-year period. Intangible drilling and development costs can be amortized over a 60-month period. The amortization periods begin with the month in which such costs were paid or incurred.

  Make the election on Form 4562. If you make the election, report the current year amortization of section 59(e) expenditures from Part VI of Form 4562 on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28. If you do not make the election, report the section 59(e)(2) expenditures on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, and figure the resulting adjustment or tax preference item (see Form 6251, Alternative Minimum Tax—Individuals). Whether you deduct the expenditures or elect to amortize them, report the amount on a separate line in column (h) of line 28 if you materially participated in the activity. If you did not materially participate, follow the Instructions for Form 8582 to figure how much of the deduction can be reported in column (f).

Code K. Deductions—portfolio (2% floor).   Amounts entered with code K are deductions that are clearly and directly allocable to portfolio income (other than investment interest expense and section 212 expenses from a REMIC). Generally, you should report these amounts on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23. See the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), lines 23 and 28, for details.

  These deductions are not taken into account in figuring your passive activity loss for the year. Do not enter them on Form 8582.

Code L. Deductions—portfolio (other).   Generally, you should report these amounts on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 28. See the Instructions for Schedule A (Form 1040), lines 23 and 28, for details.

  These deductions are not taken into account in figuring your passive activity loss for the year. Do not enter them on Form 8582.

Code M. Preproductive period expenses.   You may be able to deduct these expenses currently or you may need to capitalize them under section 263A. See Pub. 225, Farmer's Tax Guide, and Regulations section 1.263A-4 for details.

  If you did not materially participate in the activity, use Form 8582 to figure the amount to report on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (f). If you materially participated in the reforestation activity, report the deduction on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (h).

Code P. Domestic production activities information.   The corporation will provide you with a statement with information that you must use to figure the domestic production activities deduction. Use Form 8903, Domestic Production Activities Deduction, to figure this deduction. For details, see the Instructions for Form 8903.

Code Q. Qualified production activities income (QPAI).   Report the QPAI reported to you by the corporation (in box 12 of Schedule K-1) in the applicable column of Form 8903, line 7.

Code R. Employer's Form W-2 wages.   Report the portion of Form W-2 wages reported to you by the corporation (in box 12 of Schedule K-1) on Form 8903, line 17.

Code S. Other deductions.   Amounts with this code may include the following.
  • Itemized deductions that Form 1040 filers report on Schedule A (Form 1040).

  • Soil and water conservation expenditures and endangered species recovery expenditures. See section 175 for limitations on the amount you are allowed to deduct.

  • Expenditures for the removal of architectural and transportation barriers to the elderly and disabled that the corporation elected to treat as a current expense. The deductions are limited by section 190(c) to $15,000 per year from all sources.

  • Interest expense allocated to debt-financed distributions. The manner in which you report such interest expense depends on your use of the distributed debt proceeds. If the proceeds were used in a trade or business activity, report the interest on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28. In column (a) enter the name of the corporation and “interest expense.” If you materially participated in the trade or business activity, enter the interest expense in column (h). If you did not materially participate in the activity, follow the Instructions for Form 8582 to figure the interest expense you can report in column (f). Material participation is defined earlier under Passive Activity Limitations. If the proceeds were used in an investment activity, report the interest on Form 4952. If the proceeds are used for personal purposes, the interest is generally not deductible.

  • Contributions to a capital construction fund (CCF). The deduction for a CCF investment is not taken on Schedule E (Form 1040). Instead, you subtract the deduction from the amount that would normally be entered as taxable income on Form 1040, line 43. In the margin to the left of line 43, enter "CCF" and the amount of the deduction.

  • Penalty on early withdrawal of savings. Report this amount on Form 1040, line 30.

  • Film and television production expenses. The corporation will provide a statement that describes the film or television production generating these expenses. Generally, if the aggregate cost of the production exceeds $15 million, you are not entitled to the deduction. The limitation is $20 million for productions in certain areas (see section 181 for details). If you did not materially participate in the activity, use Form 8582 to determine the amount that can be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (f). If you materially participated in the production activity, report the deduction on Schedule E (Form 1040), line 28, column (h).

If you have credits that are passive activity credits to you, you must complete Form 8582-CR in addition to the credit forms identified below. See Passive Activity Limitations, earlier, and the Instructions for Form 8582-CR for details.

In general, shareholders whose only sources for a credit listed on Form 3800, General Business Credit, Part III, are partnerships, S corporations, estates, trusts, and cooperatives, are not required to complete the applicable credit form or attach it to their return. Instead, they can report the credit amounts reported to them by these pass-through entities directly on Form 3800, Part III, and enter the EIN of the entity in column (b) of Part III. However, when applicable, all shareholders must complete and attach the following credit forms to their return.

  • Form 3468, Investment Credit (Form 3800, line 1a).

  • Form 8864, Biodiesel and Renewable Diesel Fuels Credit (Form 3800, line 1l).

See the Instructions for Form 3800 for more details.

Codes A, B, C, and D. Low-income housing credit.   If section 42(j)(5) applies, the corporation will report your share of the low-income housing credit using code A or code C, depending on the date the building was placed in service. If section 42(j)(5) does not apply, your share of the credit will be reported using code B or code D, depending on the date the building was placed in service. Any allowable low-income housing credit reported using code A or code B is reported on line 4 of Form 8586, Low-Income Housing Credit, or Form 3800, line 1d (see TIP, earlier). Any allowable low-income housing credit reported using code C or code D is reported on Form 8586, line 11, or Form 3800, line 4d (see TIP, earlier).

  Keep a separate record of the low-income housing credit from each separate source so that you can correctly figure any recapture of low-income housing credit that may result from the disposition of all or part of your stock in the corporation. For more information on recapture, see the instructions for Form 8611, Recapture of Low-Income Housing Credit.

Code E. Qualified rehabilitation expenditures (rental real estate).   The corporation will report your share of the qualified rehabilitation expenditures and other information you need to complete Form 3468 related to rental real estate activities using code E.

If the corporation is reporting expenditures from more than one activity, an attached statement will separately identify the expenditures from each activity.

  Combine the expenditures (for Form 3468 reporting) from box 13, code E, and from box 17, code C. The expenditures related to rental real estate activities (box 13, code E) are reported on Schedule K-1 separately from other qualified rehabilitation expenditures (box 17, code C) because they are subject to different passive activity limitation rules. See the Instructions for Form 8582-CR for details.

If you have any qualified dividends, capital gains (including any capital gain distributions), capital losses, net section 1231 gains, or net section 1231 losses, you may have to make certain adjustments to those amounts before taking them into account on line 1a, line 5, or line 18 of Form 1116, Foreign Tax Credit.

For details, see Form 1116 and its separate instructions and Pub. 514, Foreign Tax Credit for Individuals.

Codes O and P. Extraterritorial income exclusion.   
  1. Corporation did not claim the exclusion. If the corporation reports your share of foreign trading gross receipts (code O) and the extraterritorial income exclusion (code P), the corporation was not entitled to claim the exclusion because it did not meet the foreign economic process requirements. You may still qualify for your share of this exclusion if the corporation's foreign trading gross receipts for the tax year were $5 million or less. To qualify for this exclusion, your foreign trading gross receipts from all sources for the tax year also must have been $5 million or less. If you qualify for the exclusion, report the exclusion amount in accordance with the instructions for box 1, 2, or 3, whichever applies. See Form 8873, Extraterritorial Income Exclusion, for details.

  2. Corporation claimed the exclusion. If the corporation reports your share of foreign trading gross receipts but not the amount of the extraterritorial income exclusion, the corporation met the foreign economic process requirements and claimed the exclusion when figuring your share of corporate income. You also may need to know your share of foreign trading gross receipts from this corporation to determine if you met the $5 million or less exception discussed above for purposes of qualifying for an extraterritorial income exclusion from other sources.

Note.

Upon request, the corporation should furnish you a copy of the corporation's Form 8873 if there is a reduction for international boycott operations, illegal bribes, kickbacks, etc.

Code Q. Other foreign transactions.   On a statement attached to Schedule K-1, the corporation will report any other information on foreign transactions that you may need using code Q.

For example, if the corporation made an election under Regulations section 1.1411-10(g) for a CFC the stock of which is owned by the corporation, and the relevant income and deduction items derived from that CFC are reported elsewhere on Schedule K-1, you will not need the information provided using code U to complete your Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax—Individuals, Estates, and Trusts.

The determination of whether you are required to disclose a transaction of the corporation is based on the category(ies) under which the transaction qualifies for disclosure and is determined by you and the corporation. You may have to pay a penalty if you are required to file Form 8886 and do not do so. See the Instructions for Form 8886 for details.

  2. Gross farming and fishing income. If you are an individual shareholder, report this income, as an item of information, on Schedule E (Form 1040), Part V, line 42. Do not report this income elsewhere on Form 1040.

    For a shareholder that is an estate or trust, report this income to the beneficiaries, as an item of information, on Schedule K-1 (Form 1041). Do not report it elsewhere on Form 1041.

If the corporation has deductions attributable to a farming activity, it will provide a statement showing the aggregate gross income or gain and the aggregate deductions from the farming activity that you need to figure any excess farm loss limitation. It will also provide information on any applicable subsidy it receives that would trigger the excess farm loss limitation. See section 461(j) and Pub. 225 for details.

  4. The amount included in gross income with respect to qualified zone academy bonds issued before October 4, 2008. Income with respect to these qualified zone academy bonds cannot be used to increase your stock basis. Because this amount is already included in income elsewhere on Schedule K-1, you must reduce your stock basis by this amount. See line 3 of the Worksheet for Figuring a Shareholder's Stock Basis.

  5. The amount included in gross income with respect to clean renewable energy bonds. Income with respect to clean renewable energy bonds cannot be used to increase your stock basis.

  10. Inversion gain. The corporation will provide a statement showing the amounts of each type of income or gain that is included in inversion gain. The corporation has included inversion gain in income elsewhere on Schedule K-1. Inversion gain is also reported under code V because your taxable income and alternative minimum taxable income cannot be less than the inversion gain. Also, your inversion gain (a) is not taken into account in figuring the net operating loss (NOL) for the tax year or the NOL that can be carried over to each tax year, (b) may limit your credits, and (c) is treated as income from sources within the U.S. for the foreign tax credit.
