Sounds to me like the lawyer and K-1 are correct.In a partnership (or an LLC taxed as a partnership) each owner pays income tax on their share of the partnership's income, whether or not it is distributed.So yes, you pay tax on $1100 even though you only received $1000 in cash.But all is not lost. You now have $100 of undistributed earnings in the LLC. That adds to your basis in your ownership interest. When you eventually dispose of the ownership, that $100 will reduce your gain or increase your loss. So it all works out in the end. But it is possible to pay tax on money that you haven't received.--Peter
