Sub-S distributions are different for each member, but treated pro rata in software. How to fix to show each members exact distributions

4 person Sub-S with 1st year of operation in 2018.  Only one member took a distribution in 2018.  When entering the amount on Sch K in the "Shareholder Distributions and Dividends Smart Worksheet" it automatically allocates the amount to the 4 members in a pro rata share.

Is there a separate place to enter non-pro rata distributions (cash only) and then enter directly on each member's K-1?  Or, do I need to override the distributions on each K-1 separately?

Coach - the other three players need to be in the game too.  You can't have only one player take a distribution and leave the rest of the team sitting on the bench ------------------ that kinda kills your sub S election.  You might want to think about talking to the shareholder about drafting a note payable back to the corp for that amount until you can get things straightened out in 2019.  As a side note, hopefully everyone is taking out some wages before they think about taking out distributions.

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.
