If you claim the appraisal, the trust may have a deductible loss?  However, if you are audited, unless something material happened in those 100 days to the house or the local real estate market to affect the value, I suspect the IRS position would be that the sales price was the true FMV.

I don't necessarily want to claim expenses. I just don't understand how to use the program. I need to do an amended return>
