Understanding K-1 loss limitations

SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect TaxUpdated July 27, 2021

The IRS limits losses and deductions from passthrough K-1 activities using three calculations: the basis limitation, at-risk limitation, and passive limitation.

The program applies the limits as follows:

  1. Basis limits are applied first.
  2. If losses are allowed by the basis limits, at-risk limits (Form 6198) are applied.
  3. If losses are allowed by the basis and at-risk limits, the passive limits (Form 8582) are applied for passive activities.

Refer to the instructions for Schedule E for more information about K-1 loss limitations.
