Schedules K-2 and K3 - Why Even Partnerships and S Corporations with No Foreign Activities or Members May Need to Prepare These Forms (July 6, 2022, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM CDT)

Why Attend this Course?

On January 18 the IRS posted updates to the instructions for the new Schedules K-2 and K-3 for partnerships and S corporations that pointed out that most entities with no international activities or foreign equity holders will need to provide information via these Schedules unless they obtain information from each equity holder.

In this session we'll look at the conditions under which these Schedules must be prepared by partnerships and S corporations, as well as steps that can be taken to obtain information from equity holders that may allow the entities to avoid the preparation of the forms.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Prepare Schedules K-2 and K-3 for 2021 partnership income tax returns
  • Use information from Schedule K-3 included with a partner’s K-1 to prepare the individual return
  • Recognize situations where the penalty relief for 2021 can be applied, as well as understand penalties the IRS claims it can assert if the form is not properly completed
  • List the dates the IRS expects to allow full MeF/XML filing for Schedules K-2 and K-3 for various entity types
  • Advise clients on the use of the interim period option to attach PDFs
  • Identify partnerships and S corporation data needed by clients to prepare international tax information
  • Understand what data must be obtained from partners/shareholders for a partnership or S corporation to potentially not be required to file Schedules K-2 and K-3
