Do I include the distributions listed on the K-1s provided to members as part of last year's tax return when recording "cash distributions member received from LLC"?

The only distributions the LLC has made in 2017 were those listed on the 2016 K-1s. Does this mean we enter zero for "cash distributions member received from LLC" on our 2017 tax return? Or do we enter the amounts reflected on the 2016 K-1s?

Distributions should be reported in the year they are actually made. For your 2016 return, if those distributions were actually made during 2017, then they should be reported on this year's return. If these distributions were made in 2016, then they were reported correctly and you shouldn't enter the amounts again. 

The software will keep track of the past activity, as long as you transfer your tax file each year. If no distributions of any kind were made to partners, then you shouldn't enter any amount here.
