In general - you file 1041 and K1 at the same time.
You will need to send all K1's to the IRS as attachments with 1041.
In additional - copies of K1 are given to each beneficiary.
In each K1 - you report a share of income and a share of withholding for each beneficiary.
Each beneficiary will use that information when file his/her tax return.
