For tax year 2020, the IRS introduced new partnership box 16 codes AA–AI. These codes report gross receipts and base erosion tax benefits under Regulations 1.59A-7(e)(2) (Base Erosion Tax 8991).

Business entity partners (corporations, LLCs, and partnerships) will generate multiple codes for current year and prior year gross receipts, as well as base erosion tax information. These items will populate automatically if the Partner is a Partnership, LLC, or Corporation, and can't be suppressed.

These items are for informational purposes to help the K-1 recipient complete their tax return, and they don't mean that any foreign income or activity is present on the partnership's return.

The program automatically enters these amounts based on the Form 1065 Schedule K-1 instructions. They can be specially allocated to the partners.
