We need way more information than has been provided:

  • Entity type
  • Type of sale; asset, stock
  • Was there a purchase agreement
  • What type of assets were in the business
  • Any covenant not to compete involved
  • Most likely additional questions will come up as information is provided
  • Finally, it may be in your best interest to have a one on one with a tax professional at some point
*A reminder that posts in a forum such as this do not constitute tax advice.
Also keep in mind the date of replies, as tax law changes.

iI would suggest you seek the advice of a tax pro who can go over both your personal and business situations to give the best advice for minimizing your tax burden.

Agreed ... using a local professional would be wise ... you have to fill in and file  a 8594 form  that both parties agree on and shut down the business if needed ... these things can be compicated if you don't know  what you need to do.
