Taxability of Installment Sale Payments

Receiving installment payments on rental real estate sold at a gain and owner financed.   


Amounts from forms 4797 and 6252 are ultimately being reported on form 1040, line 8, Other Income From Schedule 1, line 10.


Then, I believe I am being taxed at ordinary rates on this long term capital gain installment income, rather than the preferred lower capital rates.  


Unclear as to how to correct this in turbo tax.

Taxability of Installment Sale Payments

The Depreciation recapture portion, of the gain, is taxed at the ordinary income  rate, but not more than 25%.  It is a "section 1250 gain".
