1, ordinary business income (loss)...
2012 Schedule K1 (Form 1065) of a LLC shows a loss on Line 1, ordinary business income (loss), Part III while showing a check mark on the box 'Limited Partner or other LLC memeber' on line G, Part 1. How should this be reported on Schedule E (Form 1040) of the domestic LLC member/taxpayer who received this K1? Is it considered a passive or non-passive loss?

Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you with your tax question today.

 

A passive activity is any business activity in which a person DID NOT materially participate and usually any rental activity. In most cases, if you are a limited partner, you are not treated as having materially participated in the partnership's activities for the year.

 

A full explanation as well as the IRS instructions for Schedule E can be found at the following:

If you are still in doubt after reviewing the instructions, please come back to me here, and I will be happy to assist you further.

 

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

The thing is that the taxpayer did materially participate (spent more than 500 hours in the taxable year). So does that mean the income/loss is non-passive, instead of passive, even though the taxpayer has been marked as Limited Partner in K1.

Hi, Shiv.

 

Thank you for your follow-up question.

 

You are correct. If the taxpayer did materially participate, the income/loss would be non-passive.

 

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
