Form 1120S – Additional Information
The tax return for an S Corporation is similar to the C Corporation tax return, as well as,
the Partnership tax return. Exhibit 22-4 in the textbook provides a comparison of the tax
consequences of the three entities. Due to the similarities, Tax Form 1120S is very
similar to Tax Form 1120, and the tax form 1120S Schedule K-1 is very similar to the tax
form 1065 Schedule K-1. Listed below is additional information to assist you in the
preparation of the 1120S.
The tax forms can be found at or under Student Resources in the Library in
Tax Form 1120S
Page 1
The income and expense reporting is similar to the C corporation. Remember to exclude
items that are tax exempt or non-deductible.
Page 3 Schedule K
The Schedule K for tax form 1120S is very similar to the 1065 Schedule K. The only
lines that need to be completed are 1, 16b, 16c and 18.
If the S corporation has any pass through income (such as interest or dividend income) or
pass through expenses (such as charitable deductions) these items would be reported on
Schedule K. This problem does not have any pass through items to report.
However, there are two items (tax-exempt income and a non-deductible expense) that do
affect the shareholder’s basis and are reported on lines 16b and 16c.
The information on this page will be used to prepare Bee’s Schedule K-1.
Page 4 Schedule L
You do not need to prepare Schedule L.
Page 5 Schedule M-1
This schedule is similar to the 1120 Schedule M-1. The purpose of this schedule is to
reconcile the book income to the tax income. Line 8 on the Schedule M-1 should be the
same as line 21 on page 1. For this return, there are two reconciling items – tax exempt
income and non-deductible expense.
Page 5 Schedule M-2
You only need to prepare column (a) Accumulated Adjustments Account.
Schedule K-1 –
The preparation of the 1120S Schedule K-1 is similar to the preparation of the 1065
Schedule K-1. Use the information on Schedule K page 3 of the 1120S to complete
Schedule K-1. Remember to only include Bee’s percentage of the items on Schedule K on her Schedule
