If there is a partnership - that partnership MUST file the tax return - form 1065 and should issue K1 forms to each partner.
A partnership is the relationship existing between two or more persons/entities who join to carry on a trade or business. Each person/entity contributes money, property, labor or skill, and expects to share in the profits and losses of the business.Partnership should issue schedules K-1 to each partner reporting pro-rata share of net taxable income (or loss) -

Some additional information about partnerships may be found in IRS Publication 541 -

.
Then - if there are two partners - you as a physical person and the corporation - each will receive K1 form - and will use information from that form to prepare your individual tax return.

I filed the K1 and entered the loss. But it appeared Nothing changed in tax return. It means there is no deduction from the loss. Why? I am using Taxact online.
Expert:  Lev replied 8 months ago.

If you actively participated in the partnership - the loss is fully used to offset other taxable income.

It is hard to say what exactly you entered into your tax preparation software.
I will help to verify your tax return - if you send K1 and tax forms.
Be sure to remove all personal information.

I am not matially participant not a rental professional for the company. Can I get deduction?
Expert:  Lev replied 8 months ago.

If you did NOT actively participated in the partnership - that is passive activity and the loss is a passive loss which may be fully used only to offset other passive income.

Expert:  Lev replied 8 months ago.

But again - to verify that we need to see your K1 and tax return.
Specifically - you would need to locate form 8582 and verify if passive loss limitation is the reason for you not see that loss on your tax return.

If that is true - passive losses are carried forward and will be used in future years against other passive gains.
