13277: Where to Enter Information for Form 8846


1040 Individual Data Entry

In an individual return, I need to enter information for Form 8846, Credit for Employer Social Security and Medicare Taxes Paid on Certain Employee Tips.



Direct entry. Use the 8846 screen (on the second Credits tab). The credit is part of the General Business Credit (Form 3800). Entries on the 8846 screen carry to Form 3800, Part III, line 4f, Employer social security and Medicare taxes paid on certain employee tips (Form 8846). From there, the credit flows to Schedule 3, line 6 (Schedule 3, line 54 in Drake18, Form 1040, line 54 in Drake17 and prior), Other credits, and the 3800 box is marked.

From a K-1. If you have a K-1 from a partnership (1065) or S-corporation (1120S), fill out the appropriate K1P or K1S screen, and on the credits line (line 15 for the K1P and line 13 for the K1S) select N, Credit for employee Social Security/Medicare Taxes (Form 8846). This entry carries to Form 3800, Part III, line 4f, and then to the Schedule 3, line 6 (Schedule 3, line 54 in Drake18, Form 1040, line 54 in Drake17 and prior), with the 3800 box marked. The EIN of the pass-through entity appears in column (b) of the 3800.

For more information, see the instructions with Form 8846.
