Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
A partnership (without C or Scorp election) is a flow through entity which means the profit/loss from the partnership will be reported on your individual returns. The guaranteed payments you make will be reported on your K1s as ordinary income subject to 15.3% self-employment tax in addition to income tax as oppose to rental income that is only subject to income tax. Your partnership loss may not be deductible because of passive activity loss limitations.
