What is a Schedule K-1?

Schedule K-1 is the form used to provide each unitholder with their respective tax information for a given tax year. Each year ONEOK Partners is required to file a Form 1065 with the IRS which includes a Schedule K-1 for each unitholder.

Why am I receiving a Schedule K-1 rather than a Form 1099?

A Schedule K-1 is the required form for reporting a partner's share of the partnership tax items.

Do I report the cash I received as my taxable income?

No. You should report the taxable income items shown on your Schedule K-1 provided to you by ONEOK Partners.

Why is the amount of cash I received different from the amount I have to report on my individual income tax return?

The cash you received is a return of capital and represents your share of ONEOK Partners' available cash. The amount you are required to include in your individual income tax return is your share of ONEOK Partners' taxable income and related items which are allocated based on the number of units you owned during the tax year and reported on your Schedule K-1. These amounts differ primarily due to changes in cash flow and depreciation (a non-cash expense).

What were the distributions paid in 2016?

2016 distributions were:

Payment Date Amount / Unit
11/14/2016 $0.79
8/14/2016 $0.79
5/13/2016 $0.79
2/12/2016 $0.79

How is my basis affected by cash distributions and partnership net income?

The cash distributions you receive are a return of capital and decrease your basis in ONEOK Partners. At year-end, your basis is increased/decreased by your share of ONEOK Partners' taxable income/loss allocated to you on your Schedule K-1.

My units have been sold. Why was a Schedule K-1 sent?

A Schedule K-1 is the required form for reporting a partner's share of the partnership tax items. If you owned common units at any time during the tax year, you will receive a Schedule K-1. If you believe you received a Schedule K-1 in error, please contact our Tax Package Support Center at 1-800-371-2188.
