What is Form 1065?

Form 1065, US Return of Partnership Income, is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form used to report the income of every domestic partnership in U.S. Partnerships file an information return to report their income, gains, losses, deductions, credits, et cetera. The IRS Form 1065, therefore, serves as the tax return form of partnerships.

A partnership is a form of business wherein two or more people take ownership of the business and share the responsibilities and benefits of the company with each other.

The 1065 IRS form gives the IRS an idea of the company's financial status for the year.

Who needs to use Form 1065?

All domestic partnerships must file the IRS Form 1065. This includes limited liability corporations (LLCs) classified as domestic partnerships and headquartered in the U.S.
