Client had S Corp basis limitation in 2020 and the loss is allowed in 2021. When I click PYA on Sch E and enter the loss carryforward, the current year profit and the offsetting loss allowed appear in the Passive section of Sch E pg 2. The business is a non-passive business.
I followed the instructions from another answer that said to enter the loss carryforward in Section A column B.
How do I get the income and the offsetting loss to appear in the passive section of Sch E p2?
Solved! Go to Solution.
That worked! Thank you.
I don't understand why the PS instructions don't say to enter it that way. When I followed the PS instructions, the type of activity changed from "Nonpassive" to "Former" after I entered the loss carryforward on the K-1 worksheet in Section A column b.
All the information is available for PS to track the loss carryforward and to report the PYA correctly on Sch E pg 2. I don't understand why we have to spend so much time figuring work arounds to properly report basis limitation.
Oh well, I'm done griping. I know it won't change anything but I feel better.
Thanks for your help.
