Form 1065 Payroll Taxes

We have a LLC partnership.  Employees get paid through a payroll service and receive W2s. For our 2018 business tax filing, it says to "enter payroll taxes paid...for the entire year". Does that mean we report the actual total (employee withholdings plus employer taxes) or just the employer contribution/liability?

Just the employer portion.

Form 1065 Payroll Taxes

Farm Partnership: We use a payroll service to pay 3 employees plus myself and  my partner. Where do I show this base salary and then the payroll tax split on my return?

  2. If you've already entered information on your farm you will see a screen, Farming Net Profit/Loss Summary.  Click Edit 
  3. On the screen, Your Farming Income and Expenses, click the Start/Update box next to Farm Expenses.
  4. Enter the salaries in Labor hired.
