K-1 on TurboTax Deluxe

I have experience with Trusts K-1s but this is the first time with a partnership K-1. Thought it would be straight forward but apparently not. This is first time in 25 years using TurboTax that I have been confused. It seems to be double counting my K-1 gain. I end up with almost 40% additional taxes after entering the K-1 data (a LT gain of $13,141) with everything else complete. Maybe it is correct but that seems to be excessive. What I have: 
1) Before entering the K-1: 
    I owe Fed: $1,441 and State: $244. 
2) After entering the "Regular Gains (Losses)" 
    Sale Price: $33,333 ($400,000/12)
    Selling Expense : $2,379 ($28,551.90/12)
    Partnership Basis: $17,813 (30,954 (selling price) minus $13,141 (capital gain))
    My taxes owed increases to Fed: $3,412 and State: $759
3) After entering the K-1 boxes 1-20 (where applicable), my taxes owed again increases to:
    Fed: $5,383 and State: $1,274
I'm basically reporting the same information in steps 2 and 3 but being hit with extra taxes both times. Do I need to report steps 2 and 3 or can I just chose to enter the box data (step 3) and skip step 2? Any help would be appreciated !! Thank you.

It sounds like you may be entering the investment sale in the Investment and Estate/Trust Income section (Schedule K-1), then also entering the sale of the investment in the Investment Income section of TurboTax. You can enter the sale in either place, but not both.
