While the at-risk limitations is calculated on IRS Form 6198 At-Risk Limitations and the passive activity limitations is calculated on IRS Form 8582 Passive Activity Loss Limitations, there is not an IRS form for the potential limitations on the amount of partnership losses that you may deduct based on your basis in the partnership. You would need to enter only the loss allowed on Line 1 of IRS Schedule K-1 (Form 1065) Partner’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc. , and then manually track the basis and also the amount not allowed in the current year which could be carried forward to the time when the basis in the partnership allows the loss to be taken.
