Sale of Real Estate

Where do I report the sale of property that included a non-livable house and less than an acre of land? the property had not been rented for at least 10 years. It was my primary residence at one time, but not for the last 25 years. I did get a 1099-S. Do I need more information than what is provided on the 1099-S? I'm using TT Deluxe. Do I need a different version? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

You will report that in the same section in which you report stock and other investment sales.  To enter:


  • Type "Investment sales" in the search window and click Enter

  • On the page with "Did you sell any investments in 2020?"  Answer Yes
  • Answer "Other" to "OK, what type of investments did you sell?" and click Continue

Does this work in TT Deluxe?

No, this will be recorded on Form 8949 which is not supported in Deluxe, but is available in Premier.
