  • When you process a consolidated S Corporation extension, you do not need to select the member clients' returns via File > Print Extensions as you would for a consolidated return. Instead, after you complete data entry for each member, open the consolidated return and follow the steps outlined above.
  • Consolidated S Corporation clients file a Consolidated Group Statement Worksheet with the extension, which contains all members of the consolidated return. See Adding an 1120 consolidated return for more information about generating a consolidated return.
