How do I account for self employment taxes on Schedule K1 income?

We are an LLC being taxed as an S-Corp. During the past year, we calculated the self employment taxes on that income and included those amounts in our quarterly estimated payments.   I was told by an IRS representative that when we filed our individual return, we would need to complete a Schedule SE for each of us to properly allocate the taxes (income tax, Medicare tax, and Social Security tax). We completed our 2018 1120S return and generated a Schedule K1 for each of us.  We are using TurboTax Premier to complete our individual return.  I have entered the Schedule K1 amounts under the Income section and the total amount of the estimated payments in the deductions and credits section.  When I go to enter the self employment taxes paid under  Other Tax Situations/Business Taxes, the program tells me that we are not liable for self employment taxes.  How can I generate the Schedule SE so that we can report the taxes paid to Medicare and Social Security?

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
