E-filing a New York IT-204-LL from a Form 1040 return

SOLVEDby IntuitProSeries Professional20Updated July 27, 2021

Before you start:

  • ProSeries Basic doesn't support e-filing New York IT-204-LL.
  • To install the New York IT-204-LL in ProSeries Professional, make sure you've installed the NY Partnership.
  • ProSeries will only generate the IT-204-LL from a federal Schedule C.

Preparing Form IT-204-LL

To prepare Form IT-204-LL for a Single-Member Limited Liability Company (SMLLC) return, complete the preparation of the federal Form 1040 return and follow the steps below:

  1. In the Federal Information Worksheet Part VI, select the box under Electronic Filing of Other Payments (NY IT0204-LL or Utah Individual Return Payment).
  2. In the Payment Options* grid, select NY Form IT-04-LLC from the dropdown menu.
  3. Open federal Schedule C for the SMLLC.
  4. On the form, select the box labeled Check this box if filing the Schedule C as an LLC in CA, NY, TN, or TX.
  5. From the File menu, select Go To State/City
  6. Select New York State Partnership and select OK.
    • If New York State Partnership isn't an option, select Add State and make sure you've selected NY under the Form 1065 column.
  7. On the New York State Partnership Info Wks, complete Part VI – Form IT-204-LL Electronic Funds Withdrawal Information (E-Filing Only). 
  8. Complete the New York Form IT-204-LL.  Then, Save the return.
    • The entry for Electronic filing of the IT-204-LL on the Federal Info Worksheet Part VI, and this entry on the NYS Partnership Worksheet must match, otherwise errors will appear here.
    • The electronic filing signature authorization form for E-filing the IT-204-LL is Form TR-579-PT available in the NY State Partnership.
  9. Go to the EF Center HomeBase
    • You'll find a separate row identifying the NY IT-204-LL return, marked with the Return Type of NY Pmt.
  10. When you're ready to e-file, select just the NY Pmt row and send the return as you would any other e-return. 

Generating more than one IT-204-LL

You can only attach one SMLLC return per Individual return.

If you need to make a second SMLLC return for the same file:

  1. Open the client's federal return.
  2. From the File menu, select Save As.
  3. Give the new file a slightly different name in the Save As box and select Save. This will take you to the new file.
  4. Modify the file to include the information for the second IT-204-LL.

Filing Form IT-204-LL by the due date

Per the IRS IT-204-LL-Instructions, you must file Form IT-204-LL on or before 15th day of the third month following the end of your tax year.

If the due date falls on Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday, you can file Form IT-204-LL and the annual filing fee on the next business day.
