A composite return is a single return filed by a partnership, S corporation, or Limited Liability Company (LLC) taxed as a partnership or S corporation on behalf of two or more nonresident participants.
A composite return allows S corporations or partnerships to compute and report the SC income and tax attributable to electing nonresident shareholders or partners on a single tax return (SC1040 Individual Income Tax Return). Participants are limited to individuals, trusts, or estates who are partners of the partnership, shareholders of the S corporation, or members of an LLC taxed as an S corporation or partnership. Corporate partners and members may not participate in composite returns.
The heading states the name, address, and FEIN of the partnership, S corporation or LLC. Do not use "Composite Return for" or "Shareholders/Partners of" in the name. Mark the box for filing a composite return. Mark "Single" filing status.
