About the PTE election

Partnerships and S Corporations that do not have a partnership, LLC, or corporation, other than a disregarded entity, as a partner or shareholder, may elect to file and pay income tax at the entity level on behalf of their owners.

Single-member limited liability companies (SMLLCs) are not eligible to file Schedule PTE. 

The election is made by filing Schedule PTE by the due date or extended due date of the entity’s return. The election may only be made by qualifying owners who collectively own more than 50% of the qualifying entity. Once made, the election is irrevocable for the tax year and is binding on all owners of the qualifying entity.

To generate the PTE for a partnership:

  1. On the left-side menu, select State & Local.
  2. Click on Other Forms.
  3. Select the MN Schedule PTE screen.
  4. From State & Local, under Other Forms, go to MN Schedule PTE.
  5. Check the box for Elect Pass-through Entity Tax (PTE).

The program will calculate the Schedule PTE and carry the result to Form M2, line 2. The credit for each partner will flow to their Schedule KPI, line 30.

To generate the PTE for an S corporation:

  1. On the left-side menu, select State & Local.
  2. Click on Taxes.
  3. Select the MN Taxes screen.
  4. Scroll down to the Minnesota Pass-through Entity (PTE) Tax section.
  5. Check the box for Elect Pass-through Entity Tax (PTE).

The program will calculate the Schedule PTE and carry the result to Form M8, line 3. The credit for each shareholder will flow to their Schedule KS, line 30.
