I have made Federal tax through TurboTax and started Balance Sheet for State taxes. If I add additional info in LIABILITIES as "Loans from shareholder" it shows that it's out of Balance. If I don't add this info it's fine. But in 2018 shareholder gave money to LLC (without interest), so I need to show it in Liabilities as it's not income.
Should I add the same sum(loan from shareholder) in ASSETS somewhere to be in Balance?
When you made the loan to the entity, the entry should have been like this (assuming it was cash)
Debit Cash $x,xxx
Credit Loans from S/H $x,xxx
Thus at the time of the loan, balance sheet should have been in balance.
If want this to be truly a loan, you need to treat it as a loan...just as if it was from a third party. A no interest loan may cause problems under IRC Section 7872. See the link below. You should also have plans on how the loan is to be repaid. If no intention to be repaid, then it should be a contribution of capital rather than a loan.
