Is it legal to use taskrabbit or hire a plumber to fix an issue without my landlords knowledge if I feel that my landlord is being slow about addressing an issue like possible mold from a leak? Honestly at this point I have the $ and would prefer to just pay myself and get it over with than wait. Any consequences for me if they found out I did this?

How long ago did you ask them to fix the issue? If it has been more than 7 days, then I would hire someone to fix and deduct from your next rent payment. But first check with your local rental laws to ensure this is okay (in most states it would be)

*this is not legal advice

Does anyone know if there is a modified, more condensed way to input the new K-3 information from a K-1 on a 1040 so that our staff aren’t having to input every single country’s information.

Just seems like overkill to arrive at the same answer, but potentially I’m missing something. Senior here and the manager is out of office so figured I’d ask the fishes!
