How to enter the reported numbers from Sch k1 footnotes

ADS  - nothing needs to be done unless the partnership reports excess business interest. I don't think Turbotax is capable of handling this situation. but it doesn't seem that any EBI has been reported.


wages not sure why this was even reported. has no effect 


if distributions exceed your tx basis you have a capital gain. short-term if you've owned the partnership for 1 year or less. long-term otherwise.


the other items are only used to compute unrelated business income which only applies to tax-exempt entities like IRAs, pension plans, 401ks, and the like. so if you own the partnership you can ignore this info. 

if the partnership interest is owned by a tax-exempt entity, nothing on the k-1 gets reported on your 1040

How to enter the reported numbers from Sch k1 footnotes

You can enter footnote info on line 20, code AH.  However, TT doesn't do anything with that info.  On the forms (and maybe in the interview) there's an * stating "Manually enter item here and on appropriate tax form or schedule".


So the real question is whether any of those footnotes affect your tax return.  I'm not familiar enough with these entries to offer any opinion there.  If they do, you'd have to enter the numbers on the correct forms.  If they don't, you don't need to enter them at all.
