SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect Tax73Updated July 13, 2022

This article will walk you through importing a Schedule K-1 to an individual (1040) return in ProConnect.

Before you start

  • You can only import Schedule K-1s from business returns you prepared in ProConnect.
  • Verify that the taxpayer and spouse tax identification number (SSN or ITIN) is entered correctly in the Client Information screen.
  • Make sure the taxpayer and spouse names within the individual return match what's on the K-1.

Follow these steps to import a K-1

  1. Open the individual (1040) return, and go to the Input Return tab.
  2. Click the Import Data button, then select K-1 Import.

  6. In the Select the K-1 where you want the data to go section, you can choose an existing K-1, or choose Add New K-1.
    • If you import to an existing K-1, your previous entries will be overwritten with the updated data.
  7. Press Review to continue.
  8. Review the data on the Ready To Be Imported screen.
  9. Select Diagnostics to view information about data that can't be imported, and entries that may need review. We recommend you print or screenshot these items for future reference.
