It is actually very simple. Either download the numbers from K-1 support of create a separate for ETE K-1 as instructed using the second K-1 page for each company. Reference the secondary K-1s to ETE and you are done. The only thing you need to do separately is keep track of the loss carry forward for ETE using the original consolidated K-1. You need that number when you sell to take your passive loss.
The reason for the confusion is ETE owns over 5% of every other company and thus you technically own part of each. Jrad, if you are an accountant you know the requirement for partnerships. You also know that EPD bought out its GP, bought out DEP and sold its interest in ETE so all the confusion there is over. People need to read the directions. Most do not and simply start to enter numbers. If one uses TTax the whole process should only take 15 minutes and less for next year.
What are you talking about? You cannot import all the numbers from Tax Support so don't import any of them. Simply type EVERY number in your computer program. The only difference from a regular MLP entry is you do not need an address and you do need to put /Ref ETE in the title. And you do not have a capital account to work with or worry about.
