SOLVEDby Intuit74Updated March 17, 2023

Before you start:

  • This form isn't supported in the e-file schema for electronically filed returns and must be manually attached as a PDF attachment. See here for details.
    • When you add the PDF attachment, make sure the Type of Form 7203.
  • The allowable losses on the 7203 won't automatically flow to the Schedule K-1 Worksheet and will need to be manually entered.
  • The 7203 is not required on the 1120S return and needs to be completed on the 1040 return by the shareholders. Who must file: Form 7203 is filed by shareholders who:
    • Are claiming a deduction for their share of an aggregate loss from an S corporation (including an aggregate loss not allowed last year because of basis limitations),
    • Received a non-dividend distribution from an S corporation,
    • Disposed of stock in an S corporation (whether or not gain is recognized); or
    • Received a loan repayment from an S corporation
  • If the shareholder had multiple Stock Blocks in the S-Corporation, additional copies of Form 7203 would need to be manually completed and attached for each additional Stock Block.

Step 1 - Complete the 7203 in the individual return:

  1. Open the Individual return.
  2. Press F6 to bring up Open Forms.
  3. Type S to highlight K-1 S Corp and click OK.
  4. Select the K-1 you need the 7203 for.
  5. Scroll down to Part II - Information About the Shareholder.
  6. Select the QuickZoom to Form 7203 for stock and basis limitations.
  7. Complete Part I to show and calculate the Shareholders Stock Basis.

  9. In Part III enter any current year losses and deductions on line 35-46 column (a).
  10. In Part III enter any basis carryover losses and deductions on line 35-46 column (a).
  11. You should now have the calculations required to enter the Schedule K-1.

Step 2 - Complete the Schedule K-1 Worksheet in the individual return:

  1. Go back to the Schedule K-1 worksheet for the Shareholder.
  2. Scroll down to Part III - Shareholders Share of Current Year Income, Deductions, Credits, Other Items.
  3. Using the amounts from the 7203 Part III columns C and D enter the allowable losses on the Schedule K-1 worksheet for the shareholder.
    • Amounts on the 7203 Part III column E will transfer to next years return.
  4. Enter any additional items from the Schedule K-1 received that we're not limited by the 7203.
  5. If you are e-filing the return print the completed Form 7203 to PDF and attach the PDF to the e-filed return. See here for details.
