Introduction to Schedule E Self-Study
If your client earns rental income on a home or building they own, receives royalties or has income reported on a Schedule K-1 from a partnership or S corporation, you must prepare a Schedule E with their return. Schedule E (Form 1040), Supplemental Income and Loss, is for reporting residential rental income and expenses, as well as pass-through items from S corporations, partnerships, estates and trusts.
