The Internal Revenue Service has revised Schedules K-1 for this year's filing season in an effort to reduce common errors and the burden associated with preparation and filing requirements.

Income, deductions and credits from partnerships, S corporations and trusts are reported to investors on Schedules K-1. The new partnership and S corp Schedules K-1 will be available for the 2004 tax year and the trust Schedule K-1 will be available for tax year 2005.  Approximately 25 million Schedules K-1 are filed each year, with the highest number filed by partnerships.
