Does my client's partnership, which owns an interest in a second partnership, eliminate the SE income/non-farm income from the partnership it owns?

When I input the other partnership's K-1, the SE Income and Non-farm income from it don't 'roll through' to my client's K-1.  The numbers get eliminated  on the SE income tax worksheet on my client's partnership.  Is this correct or a glich in Proseries sftwre? 

My client owns 3.36% of second partnership and provides w-2 services.  The K-1 from this p'ship now runs through his newly formed p'ship owned 50:50 by he and his wife, which in turn renders a K-1 to them personally.  However, the sftwre eliminates the SE earnings and non-farm income from the k-1 from the second p'ship.


Does your client materially participate in the second partnership?

People come to Accountants Community 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.
