SMLLC owned by Multi-Member LLC

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope all is well!

    I have a SMLLC who is owned by a Multi-Member LLC filing form 1065.

    Both own rental real estate and both maintain completely separate set of books.

    My instinct is to report the SMLLC P&L activity on form 8825 of the 1065 as property B for example but what do i do with the balance sheet presentation and depreciation for SMLLC?.  If I don't consolidate the two balance sheets the activity will probably not make sense.  But consolidating the two balance sheets doesn't seem right to me either. Or do i disregard the 1065 altogether and report the activity on Schedule E of each partner?  This doesn't feel right either.

    Any advice is welcomed.

    Thank you,

    You combine the balance sheets. The smllc is treated as a division od the partnership.

    The 8825 presentation is correct and you just need to include the depreciation for the proprry.
