We sold a vacation home owed by four siblings that was inherited 12 years ago. It was rarely used by the siblings and was rented out. Where is this sale reported?

You can each enter your own share of the home on your own returns (presuming you have no other business together). If it was rented this year or held for sale as a rental, then you will need to report it as a rental home (under Rental Income & Expenses) and indicate that it was sold. 

To do so, you need to go into the rental section and choose to Edit this rental property (or set it up in the software). Then, you will be on the XYZ Rental Summary Screen and indicate the property was sold by:

  1. Under the Property Profile, indicate by checking the box, that the property was Sold or disposed of in 2017
  2. Under the Asset/Depreciation section, select the box that the asset was sold in 2017. You'll be asked all of the applicable questions.
