Converting a rental house to a non-rental house.

I listed my house for sale in 2013. It didn't sell, so I rented it and moved to another state where I'm renting. The tenants moved out in 2016 and I listed it for sale again (it's not for rent). It sat empty for the second half of 2016. Do I still split the taxes and interest? Do I do that manually? What do I enter in the 'Personal Use' question? It's the only house I own. Is it considered a primary residence?

Converting a rental house to a non-rental house.

First half it is a rental, so all property taxes and depreciation should be claimed for first half of the year.  

You would list it as 100% rental (as it was for the first 6 months) and then in the Rental Profile area, you will answer on the screen, "Do Any of these Situations Apply to This property?" you will mark the box CONVERTED to personal use (if no longer available to be rented. 

Interest and Property taxes paid in the last half of the year are an itemized deduction to you.
