Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi from just answer.Customeragain.
I see you are still looking to resolve your tax filing question. Finding 2012 solutions you buy yourself will be hard to do.
I suggest using a local tax pro to complete your 2012 return. There are not many alternatives for buying old software for non professional use. We use ATX, which does allow the overrides you need, but it is not typically available for one return.
Thanks again for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
https://www.cchsfs.com/professional-tax-software/atx.aspx will get you started.
Since you are a tax pro, buying prior year pro software is an option. They also have a low volume pay per return option.
Just as a disclaimer, we aren't allowed to recommend any products on the site.
I believe yes to both.

QuickBooks date does directly import.
The K-1 options include the override option I discussed, and the traditional allocation methods. I did not see an automatic option for a "closing of the books" method in my version of the software.
Thanks again for using Just Answer. Positive feedback is appreciated, as is a bonus for the extra time. I'mCustomer
The closing of the books method is not standard to the software options we discussed. Since an override option in the second software does allow for the preparation method, after QuickBooks import, I believe I did offer a usable alternative. Since your QuickBooks files are not prepared in a closing of the books method anyway, any such allocation would have to be manually done anyway regardless of tax software used for import and processing.

You can manually allocate any K-1 items on a master allocation sheet.
https://cs.thomsonreuters.com/ua/ut/2015_cs_us_en/pus/faq/alloc_ptr_distributing_amount_using_proration_example.htm offers a great example of how to do the math.
There is not an election box on the K-1 to report the allocation method. I suggest a blank attachment sheet in which you discvlose the method, if you wish, and cite the reg, 26 CFR 1.706-1 - Taxable years of partner and partnership. Here's a link: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/26/1.706-1
