As you have lived in your home for less than 2 years, you are not eligible for the capital gain exclusion on the sale of your home. You'll have to report the sale (just as you would do for the sale of a second home) on your tax return if you have a capital gain, which is the case.

The $10k which you paid towards your new house is not reported on your tax return. You may or may not receive form 1099-S for the sale of your home but in any case, you have to report the sale of the home.

Please read this TurboTax FAQ on how to report the sale:
