Generating Form 1116 Foreign Tax Credit for an individual return in ProConnect Tax

This article will help you enter foreign taxes paid (or withheld) to calculate the foreign tax credit on Schedule 3, Line 1.

Before you start

  • There are six methods for entering foreign taxes paid, depending on the type of income the taxes are associated with.
  • For ProConnect Tax to calculate the Credit for Foreign taxes paid, an entry in US Dollars must be made. Entries under the Foreign Currency section won't generate a credit.
  • ProConnect Tax can't convert foreign currency amounts to US dollars, so any currency conversion must be done outside the program.
