I sold my home last year. Where do I claim that?

To enter the sale of your main home in TurboTax:

  • Open (continue) your return in TurboTax Online. (If your return isn't open, you'll need to sign in, click Take me to my return, then click Pick up where I left off.)
  • Click My Account (top right of your screen).
  • Select Tools.
  • In the pop-up window, select Topic Search.
  • In the search bar, type sale of home.
  • In the results box, highlight sale of home, then click GO.
  • You'll land on Sale of Your Main Home. (Click the screenshot below for reference.) TurboTax prompts, Did you sell or have your home foreclosed in 2016? Click Yes.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to complete this section. Note: If you received a Form 1099-S for the sale, you'll be able to indicate this in TurboTax.

Note: If using the TurboTax CD/Download software, you'll use the Find function (instead of "My Account") to search for the topic.

Is the money I made from a home sale taxable?  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3300213
