Before you start:
- If the S corporation made non-cash contributions in excess of $500, prepare Form 8283, Noncash Charitable Contributions, and attach it to the return. Form 8283 should also include the information from any partnership K-1's. The program does not calculate noncash information from partnership K-1's on Form 8283. Review the IRS instructions for Form 8283 to determine what information is required.
- Refer to the IRS Instructions for Form 8283 if the deduction for any item or group of similar items of contributed property exceeds $5,000, even if the amount allocated to any shareholder does not exceed $5,000.
Where do I enter?
- Navigate to Form 1120S, Page 3, line 12a.
