SOLVEDby IntuitLacerte Tax35Updated September 29, 2021

The following are frequently asked questions about filing the IT-204-LL for disregarded entities in the individual module:

To generate NY form IT-204-LL for a sole proprietorship:

  1. Go to Screen 16, Schedule C.
  2. Scroll down to the Other Information section.
  3. Check the box Single Member LLC.
  4. Scroll down to the New York LLC Disregarded Entity (IT-204-LL) section.
  5. Check the box LLC disregarded entity (Mandatory).
    • In 2008 and prior years, the checkbox is Print Form (Mandatory).

To generate NY form IT-204-LL for a rental activity:

  1. Go to Screen 18, Schedule E.
  2. Scroll down to the Other Information section.
  3. Check the box Single Member LLC.
  4. Scroll down to the New York LLC Disregarded Entity (IT-204-LL) section.
  5. Check the box LLC disregarded entity (Mandatory).

To generate NY form IT-204-LL for another entity:

If you have already checked the LLC Disregarded entity (Mandatory) checkbox on either Screen 16, Schedule C or Screen 18, Schedule E, you do not need to use this screen. All the same input fields may be found there. Otherwise doing so may cause duplicate IT-204-LLs to generate.

  1. Go to Screen 54, Taxes.
  2. Click on New York Other Separate SMLLC IT-204-LL from the left navigation panel. This will take you to Screen 54.098.
  3. Check the box LLC Disregarded entity (Mandatory).
  4. Complete the rest of this screen as necessary.

It is important to note that Form IT-204-LL will not generate if the No income gain/loss/deduction from NY sources box is checked. 

Per the IT-204-LL instructions:

"Form IT-204-LL, Partnership, Limited Liability Company, and Limited Liability Partnership Filing Fee Payment Form, must be filed by:

  • every LLC that is a disregarded entity for federal income tax purposes that has income, gain, loss, or deduction from New York State sources; and
  • every domestic or foreign LLC (including a limited liability investment company (LLIC) or a limited liability trust company (LLTC)), or LLP that is required to file a New York State partnership return and that has income, gain, loss, or deduction from New York State sources; and
  • every regular partnership that is required to file a New York partnership return that has income, gain, loss, or deduction from New York State soruces, and had New York source gross income for the preceding tax year of at least $1 million.

Note: A partnership, LLC, or LLP with no income, gain, loss, or deduction from New York sources who is filing a partnership return solely because it has a New York resident partner, is formed under the laws of New York State, or is dormant, is not subject to the filing fee."

  1. Go to Screen 1, Client Information.
  2. Check the box, New York Limited Liability, to set the LLC return for e-filing.
  3. Go to Screen 54.099, New York IT-204LL E-File/Payment.

      3. Sch. E LLC (Screen 18 activities) 1, 2, 3...
  5. Fill out the mandatory information for each LLC.
