Reporting tax basis for partners

The draft to Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) required the reporting of a partner’s capital account on the tax basis method. However, the IRS has extended this reporting requirement until 2020 returns. Thus, on 2019 returns, report the capital account using instructions to the 2018 return, which includes the requirement to report negative tax basis capital accounts on a partner-by-partner basis.
