In the sale of a rental property, where does the amount to pay off the first mortgage loan go

My asset sales price was 77,900.  Where do I put the payoff of the first mortgage loan (55638.31)?  Thank you.

The payoff of the mortgage does not go into the calculation of gain or loss in terms of taxable income.

Selling price

minus

Expenses of sale (repairs, closing costs, etc.)

minus

Your basis (Purchase price + costs + improvements)

This calculation is how you determine gain/loss on sale. The mortgage amount does not matter.
