How do I enter a disabled access credit from a K-1?
If your client's only source of this credit is from a passthrough entity, Form 8826 isn't required, and any allowed credit will flow to Form 3800.
- If the credit is from a partnership K-1, enter it on Screen 20.1, Partnership Information in the Line 15 - Credits and Withholding table.
- If the credit is from an S corporation, enter it on Screen 20.2, S Corporation Information in the Line 13 - Credits and Withholding table.
If the credit isn't flowing to the 1040, check the 8582-CR and worksheets to see if the credit was limited.
