Is there a way to link 8829 to schedule E?

You need to manually fill out the 8829 to get the proper amount, and enter it as a Unreimbursed Partnership Expense (assuming the Partnership Agreement requires the Partner to pay for that out-of-pocket).

The partnership owns a home?   Or the partners use their own homes?

So 8829 doesn't actually need filed but just use it to calculate deduction?

Correct, it is only used as a worksheet.  Actually, you don't even need to use Form 8829, you can use the worksheet in Publication 587.

I had my first one of these that went with Sch E this year, I used a dummy Sch C to compute the 8829, printed it (got rid of the Sch C/8829) and then just entered the amount on the Sch E.
