1040 Individual

Can I enter and track basis for partners or shareholders in the individual return? 

Yes, basis worksheet calculations are available in the 1040 return.

  • Partner Basis and Debt Basis are entered on the K1P screen, on the tabs Basis Wkst and Basis Wkst (cont.).
  • The Stock Basis and Debt Basis amounts are entered on the K1S screen, on the tabs Basis (7203) and Basis, cont. (7203).*

After you have entered the basis details, the program will track the adjusted basis, limit any losses based on the basis calculation, and carry forward to subsequent years the adjusted basis and any disallowed losses. Review the basis worksheets produced in view mode for more information:
