12146: 1120 - Entering Officer Information - Form 1125-E

1120 Corporate

Where do I enter officer information for Form 1120? Why is Form 1125-E not being produced? 


Officer information is entered on screen E. Entries are used to complete Form 1125-E (if required).

Employment Dates - If an entry is made in the Date employed in the position to field (indicating that the officer is no longer employed with the corporation), the program will not update the officer’s information to the next year.

Ownership and Participation - To enter the ownership percentage for the officer, enter the percentage as a whole number. For example, enter 40 to indicate 40 percent.

Generating Form 1125-E 

Form 1125-E, Compensation of Officers is not generated automatically with the return unless required. Total receipts (line 1a, plus lines 4 through 10) on Form 1120 must be $500,000 or more.

To force the software to print Form 1125-E, on the PRNT screen (Miscellaneous tab) select Force Form 1125-E, Officer Compensation at the top left under Items to Print.

Screen E compensation amount totals are calculated and carried to Form 1120, line 12.

The total of officer compensation can be entered in the Officer Compensation override field on the DED screen (generally used when Form 1125-E is not required). An entry in that field overrides any calculations from screen E, changing Form 1120, but not Form 1125-E.
