Why does Turbotax keep asking for sales related data for rental properties?

If you mean the QBI, no, there shouldn't be any connection. You may have accidentally clicked that it was sold. The screens where this could have happened are below.

What do you mean by "sales related data". Rental property can qualify as QBI.

 

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 added Section 199A to the Internal Revenue Code. Section 199A allows a deduction of 20 percent of certain non-corporate taxpayers’ “qualified business income” (QBI) from a trade or business. Sole proprietors and small business benefit from Section 199A. Section 199A also benefits some real estate investors and real estate investment structures.

On September 24, 2019, the IRS issued Revenue Procedure 2019-38 (Rev Proc 2019-38). This revenue procedure provides a safe harbor under which income from rental real estate will be QBI.

 

199A Applied to Real Estate Investments

Under Section 199A rental of real estate is treated as a trade or business provided the owner is an individual. Most of the time, real estate qualifies under Section 199A if the primary purpose for engaging in real estate rental is for income or profit.

Corporations and partnerships aren’t eligible for the Section 199A deduction on their tax returns. However, the shareholders of an S corporation or the partners of a partnership (or limited liability company taxed as a partnership) may be eligible for the deduction,

This article discusses the Rev Proc 2019-38 safe harbor. General discussion of Section 199A and specifics regarding its application to real estate investments are beyond the scope of this article.

 

Safe Harbor Requirements

The Rev Proc 2019-38 includes these requirements:

  1. The taxpayer must hold its interest in real estate either directly or through a disregarded entity.
  2. The taxpayer must be engaged in a rental real estate enterprise (RREE).
  3. In three of the previous five years, 250 or more hours of rental services per year must have been performed for the RREE. If the RREE hasn’t yet existed for five years, then there must have been 250 or more hours of rental services performed every year since it was formed.
  4. The RREE must maintain separate books and records. If the RREE owns multiple properties, it may maintain records at the property level and consolidate them at the RREE level.
  5. The taxpayer annually elects to rely upon the safe harbor, and the taxpayer or RREE attaches a statement to its tax return containing specific information.

In reviewing my taxes, Turbotax keeps asking questions related to specific rental houses I own.  They are, "what was the sales price", and "when did you sell them", etc.    I believe this is related to my attempt to use them to take advantage of the Qualified Business Credit, but am not certain.  I have owned them for years and have never had any problem before.

You need a higher version to calculate the Qualified Business Income deduction if you are using TurboTax Online.   You need Premier to enter rental income and deductions and you need Self-Employed to enter self-employment related deductions.   @natashka97

@natashka97   You cannot use TT Online to do a 2019 tax return now.  You must use the 2019 desktop version.
