These instructions are for clarification on the more complex parts of each section of the organizer. It is
organized in the same order as the organizer.
Section 1: Business Information

Section 2: Owner’s Information
It is very important to make sure this information is accurate. If you are filing an 1120S or a 1065 return,
each owner/partner needs to receive a K-1 from the business for their personal tax returns. This section
gives us the information needed to create K-1’s for all of the owners.
Primary Contact: If there is more than one owner, provide the contact information for the person who
will be handling the tax return.

If you have a computer generated Profit and Loss Statement and Balance Sheet then you can just
provide those documents instead of filling out this section.

is not involved with on a day-to-day basis. (i.e. interest income, refunds, etc.)

purchased to produce a product or products you purchased for resale.
