Where do I enter my FSA contribution?

I'm under a unique situation where a dependent care FSA is provided to a partnership. No taxes are withheld from partnership income so we pay quarterly estimates.


I would think that there's some place to enter the amount we contributed to the FSA in turbotax somewhere (other than box 12 which doesn't appear to affect taxable income from the partnership). Sorry, I know it sounds confusing but bear with me:


By example, the partnership has a 401k, which we contribute to and is shown on box 12 of our K1. However, when I enter the amount in box 12 for the K1, the gross income from the partnership isn't adjusted. What I have to do is enter the same 401k contributions amounts in the self employment retirement plan section of turbo tax to capture the pretax benefits.


Is there some way to handle the FSA contributions similarly somewhere in turbo tax?

Does your 1065 K-1 have a code O?


The 1065 instructions say "

Code O. Dependent care benefits.


The partnership will report the dependent care benefits you received. You must use Form 2441, Part III, to figure the amount, if any, of the benefits you may exclude from your income.

" See https://www.irs.gov/instructions/i1065sk1

Yes - the same thing happened to me! I saw a message saying that I'd get asked later about the FSA. This did not happen, and it caused me a lot of confusion.
