IRS Adds New Domestic Filing Exception for Partnership Schedules K-2 and K-3

Beginning with their 2021 tax years, partnerships with “items of international tax relevance” must file Schedule K-2, Partners’ Distributive Share Items—International, and Schedule K-3, Partner’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc.—International.

Draft partnership instructions for the 2022 Schedules K-2 and K-3 (Form 1065) and partner’s instructions for the 2022 Schedule K-3 were released October 25. The instructions add a “domestic filing exception” for a partnership that meets all four of the following requirements for its 2022 tax year:

A partnership that receives a timely request from a partner for a Schedule K-3 does not qualify for the domestic filing exception and must file Schedules K-2 and K-3 with the IRS and provide Schedule K-3 to the requesting partner. However, the partnership only needs to complete the parts of Schedules K-2 and K-3 that are relevant to that partner.

If a partnership receives a request from a partner for a Schedule K-3 after the one-month date but no requests by that due date, the partnership only needs to provide Schedule K-3 to the requesting partner by the date on which the partnership files its return or one month after it receives the request, whichever is later.

The draft instructions note that if a partnership fails the domestic filing exception test, it may still qualify for an exception to the filing requirement if all of its partners are eligible for the exemption from filing Form 1116.

A regularly updated IRS FAQ sheet on Schedules K-2 and K-3 states that “comments on the draft instructions can be provided to lbi.passthrough.international.form.changes@irs.gov on or before November 8, 2022.”

The draft instructions also add guidance on when a domestic partnership with only domestic activity needs to file Schedules K-2 and K-3, on reporting capital gains and losses and foreign tax redeterminations, and on reporting income inclusions required by 2022 regulations that apply aggregate treatment to domestic partnerships in some situations.

Draft instructions for S corporations’ 2022 Schedules K-2 and K-3 have not been issued yet.
