This is the partner's share of gross income from the property, share of production for the year, etc. needed to figure the partner's depletion deduction for oil and gas. The partnership should also have allocated to the partner their share of the adjusted basis of each partnership oil and gas property. See IRS Pub. 535 for more information.

How you enter the depletion information depends upon how the much detail you have from the partnership. If the partnership provided you with property-by-property detail of the oil and gas activities, use #2 below. If such detail is not provided, then please proceed to #1 below.

Solution #1 - Entering Oil and Gas on the passthrough K-1 screen:

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. From the left of the screen, select Income and choose Passthrough K-1's.

  4. From the top of the screen, select Lines 11-20.
  5. Scroll down to the Oil & Gas section.
  6. Enter the (20T) Cost depletion.
  7. Enter the (20T) Percentage depletion.
    • If you enter the depletion amounts here, there won't be a comparison for greater of cost or percentage depletion. ProConnect assumes that the amounts entered have already been compared on the Partnership return. When entering the depletion, be sure to enter the AMT Depletion amounts as well, they aren't assumed to be equal to the regular tax amount.

If the K-1 is a passive activity, then the depletion will be subjected to the passive limitations. If you have any percentage depletion amounts that were suspended in prior years because of the passive limits, enter them in Prior unallowed passive percentage depletion.

After the passive limits have been applied, the 65% taxable income limitation is applied to percentage depletion. If you have any amounts that were disallowed in a prior year because of the 65% limitation, enter them in Depletion carryover.

For all the carryovers amounts mentioned above, be sure to also enter the AMT version of the carryover as well.

Solution #2 - See Entering Oil and Gas Information.

The partnership will report any information needed to figure unrelated business taxable income under section 512(a)(1). This information is only relevant to tax-exempt organizations. Individual taxpayers can disregard the information.

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. From the left of the screen, select Income and choose Passthrough K-1's.

The partnership may use this code Y to report information you may need to determine your net investment income tax under section 1411 that is not reported elsewhere on the Schedule K-1 or K-3. Code Y is used to report information not provided elsewhere on Schedule K-3 (or an attachment) regarding income from CFCs and passive foreign investment companies (PFICs) the stock of which is owned by the partnership.

For CFCs and PFICs that you treat as qualified electing funds (QEFs), the information that is relevant to you will depend on whether you, the partnership, or a lower-tier entity has made an election under Regulations section 1.1411-10(g) with respect to the CFC or QEF. For example, if the partnership made an election under Regulations section 1.1411-10(g) for a CFC the stock of which is owned by the partnership, and the relevant income and deduction items derived from that CFC are reported elsewhere on the Schedule K-3, then you will not need the information provided in code Y to complete your Form 8960.

If you are an individual who is a U.S. citizen or resident, or a domestic trust or estate, follow the Instructions for Form 8960 to figure and report your net investment income and AGI or MAGI.
