K1 A K-1, or Schedule K-1, is a tax document used in the United States to report a shareholder's share of income, deductions, credits, and other relevant tax information from a pass-through entity. Pass-through entities are business structures where income and tax liabilities are passed through to the individual owners, rather than being taxed at the entity level. Common types of pass-through entities include partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and S corporations. Here are some key points about the K-1:
Pass-Through Entities: The K-1 is primarily associated with pass-through entities. These entities do not pay income taxes themselves; instead, their income, deductions, and credits are passed through to the owners or shareholders, who report these items on their individual tax returns. Information Included: The K-1 provides detailed information about the partner's or shareholder's share of the entity's income, losses, deductions, and credits. This information is then used by the individual to complete their personal tax return. Components of a K-1:
  • Income and Losses: The K-1 reports the individual's share of the entity's ordinary business income or loss.
  • Deductions: Various deductions, such as depreciation, depletion, and other business expenses, are reported on the K-1.
  • Credits: Any tax credits associated with the entity's activities may be included on the K-1.
  • Other Information: Depending on the specific circumstances, the K-1 may also include other information such as foreign transactions, tax-exempt income, and more.
Filing Deadline The deadline for providing K-1 forms to partners or shareholders is typically March 15th for calendar-year entities. However, the due date can be extended under certain circumstances. Individual Tax Reporting: Once individuals receive their K-1 forms, they use the information to complete the relevant sections of their personal tax returns. The income, losses, deductions, and credits reported on the K-1 are then reflected in the individual's overall tax liability. Book a Demo
