Section 199A allows the QBI deduction for ordinary income of a limited partner in an LLC performing real estate development. The program does not seem to allow linking the K-1 to the calculation of the 20% QBI deduction. How can this be accomplished?
It depends. You are correct, it can qualify for the deduction. There are two entries on your K-1 that you must have. The first is Box 2 (which you are reporting as a K-1 with rental income as compared to ordinary income). The other is Box 20 with a code of Z. If this information has not been entered into TurboTax, QBI will not calculate. If this information is not on your K-1, it's possible that the K-1 was prepared incorrectly. These codes are necessary for the QBI to calculate.
If you did have these codes, and you entered them into the corresponding places in the K-1 interview, then use Forms Mode to see the QBI Worksheets in desktop TurboTax. The QBI should be calculating on the K-1 worksheet (at the very end of the worksheet), and then transferring over to the QBI worksheet (simple or complex) and from there the deduction is determined.
