I have my own business, and my husband is a 15% partner. Will Turbo Tax figure out his 15% and add it to his taxes or do I have to add it to his profile and split it out?

I have my own business and my husband is a 15% partner.  When I do my profile it asks me who my partner is, I put spouse and say I own 85%.  Will Turbo Tax automatically figure out his 15% and add it to his taxes or do I have to create a self employed for him and split it out accordingly?  I thought it would automatically do it but I don't see any info on his forms when I look at them.  Thanks


Answer

It may do it automatically but only if the forms are coupled, that is joined together for tax purposes.  There should be a box to tick in the spouse's information section on your return to say you want to do them together.  If they are not coupled, there is no way for the software to make the connection.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
