California is the only state data that will export & import for the business to business transfer

See Schedule K-1 Export / Import for the basic functionality in Lacerte.

Important Information Requirements/Limitations:

  • The return must be a Calendar Year: Lacerte doesn't export or import K-1's from a fiscal year return.
  • Grantor Trust: Lacerte doesn't export a grantor trust to the Individual (1040) module since a grantor trust doesn't produce a Schedule K-1.
  • Partner / Shareholder / Beneficiary Name: Make sure that the name on the K-1 matches that listed on Screen 1 in the recipient's (importer's) return.
  • Recipient's EIN - Make sure the EIN listed on the K-1 in the issuer's (exporter's) return matches the EIN entered in Screen 1 in the recipient's (importer's) tax return.
  • Make sure the K-1 Data path setup in the options by going to Settings -> Options -> Setup -> K-1 Data Path. This should be the same within all modules.
  • In general, state K-1 information won't transfer in the K-1 export to 1040. Amounts from state Schedule K-1's or pass-through summaries must be entered in the applicable screen by the user. Note: for the Partnership module, certain line items will transfer the sourcing for California.
