Changes to IRS Rules for Partnerships in the 2022 Tax Year
December 10, 2022
New for the 2022 tax year, the IRS allows investment clubs to opt out of Schedules K-2 and K-3.
In 2021, the IRS introduced Schedules K-2 and K-3 to Form 1065 used by partnerships. These schedules report foreign income earned by the partnership in the tax year, and are in excess of 20 pages in length for Schedules K-2 and 20 pages for each partner's K-3. However, the reporting required by most investment clubs involved only a few fields on these schedules.
For 2022, the IRS allows partnerships to opt out of Schedules K-2 and K-3 if four conditions are fully met:
If a club meets the above criteria, a club administrator may use the notification system in the club's myICLUB.com website to notify members of its intent to not file Schedules K-2 and K-3. This tool is available in the Taxes tab of the club's website.
If a member does request a Schedule K-3 (for instance, if they have a significant amount of foreign income to report on their personal return), then the myICLUB.com Club Tax Printer can generate a K-3 for that partner only as well as the Schedule K-2 for the club return.
