Which UltraTax/1065 forms are not included in the partnership return electronic file?


The following forms are available in UltraTax/1065 but are not included in the partnership return electronic file. The forms are not included because either the forms are filed to the IRS separately from Form 1065 or 8865, or the IRS has not yet released updated schemas.

  • Form 1065X, Amended Return or Administrative Adjustment Request (AAR) (A PDF attachment is not required. To electronically file an amended return, enter the reason for the amended return in Screen 1065 and complete the data entry for Form 8082, as required, in the Non Calculating folder. UltraTax CS marks Form 1065, Page 1, item G(5) and includes the reason the return is amended in the electronic file. See IRS Publication 4163, Part III for more information about filing an amended partnership return.)

The copy filed with Form 1065 is included in the electronic file. The second copy is not electronically filed and must still be separately paper filed with the IRS.
