Sell of a home in california

My ex husband and I sold our home in 07/2019. We have been divorced since 2010 and lived in the home with our children. We made a profit on the sale of the house. How do I show on my tax return that my ex husband received half of the proceed? I'm using turbotax and doesn't give me the option to split the proceed. 

Can anyone help me with this please?

Sell of a home in california

As you co-own the home 50/50 with your ex-husband, on your tax return, you only report the sale of your share of the home by reporting 50% of all numbers: sales price, basis, sales expenses,... TurboTax does not split the numbers. You do the splitting manually and enter your share in TurboTax.

 

As you owned your share of the home and have lived in it for 2 years in the 5 years prior to the sale, you are eligible for the capital gain exclusion of up to $250,000.
