What's new for Schedule K-1 for tax year 2023:

For tax year 2023 the IRS has added multiple new codes to the Schedule K-1. Most changes involve new codes for Other Income, Other Deductions, Other Credits and Other Information to provide additional details for when the 1040 is completed. To see the Partnership codes click here, to see the S-Corporation codes click here and scroll down to the code lists on the last pages of the instructions.


ProSeries does not support the calculation or track basis limitations in the 1040 formset however there are some tools available to help you enter and track this yourself.

  1. Open the tax return.
  2. Open the Schedule K-1 Worksheet S-Corporations.
  3. Scroll down to Part III Shareholder's Share of Current Year Income, Deductions, Credits, or Other Items.
  4. Determine which line the basis limitation applies to Ordinary Business Income (loss), Net rental real estate income (loss), or Other net rental income (loss).
  5. Right-click on the line and choose Supporting Statements.
  6. Enter a description on the first line and the original loss as a negative number.
  7. Enter a description and a positive adjustment amount to reflect the basis limitation.
  8. Click Close.

Note: To track the Basis Loss limitations through the years, create a Miscellaneous Statement and enter the information that needs to be tracked.

When you have more than one type of activity for the Schedule K-1 you can only enter one activity type per K-1. If you try to enter more then one you will receive the following error:

To resolve this error:
