Fed Returns Generally

How do I complete Form 8844 in Drake Tax?

Partnerships and S Corporations must file Form 8844 to claim the Empowerment Zone Employment Credit. All others are generally not required to complete or file this form if their only source for this credit is a partnership, S corporation, estate, trust, or cooperative. Instead, they can report this credit directly on Form 3800, General Business Credit (certain exceptions apply).

In Drake Tax, screen 8844 is available in:

  • Partnership, S-corporation, and Estate data entry on the Credits tab. 
  • Corporation and Individual data entry on the first Credits tab.
