It is not the job of an S-corporation to keep track of shareholder's Basis; that is the job of the shareholder.  Therefore the K-1 does not show "excess distributions". 

The K-1 shows distributions.  If the distributions are in excess of Basis, that is calculated by the shareholder and entered on the shareholder's 1040.
