How do I report the $20,000 loss on the rental sale?  It keeps deleting the sale because it wasn't a gain. I have depreciated the asset over the years and have included that in my figures .

Losses from rental properties are deductible as ordinary losses. This should be reported in Part II of Form 4797. You are reporting the sale in Part III which is only used for gain transactions.
