Ferrellgas is a publicly traded master limited partnership. Unitholders are partners in Ferrellgas and receive cash distributions. A partnership generally is not subject to federal or state income tax. The annual income, gains, losses, deductions, or credits of Ferrellgas flow through to its investors, who are required to report their allocated share of these amounts on their tax returns as though the investor had incurred these items directly.
Each March, investors receive Schedule K-1 tax packages that summarize their allocated share of Ferrellgas’ reportable tax items. In general, cash distributions received during the year should not be reported as taxable income even though those distributions may be shown on a statement issued by a broker. Only the amounts shown on the Schedule K-1 should be entered on investors’ tax returns.
Ferrellgas is proud to announce that the tax year 2011 K-1 tax information will be accessible to unitholders online using Ferrellgas’ enhanced Partner DataLink K-1 information website. Tax packages are scheduled to be available online beginning in the last week of February. If you would like to receive an email notification when your tax year 2011 information is available, please go to www.PartnerDataLink.com/Ferrellgas and register your email address.
