Tax calculation wrong

I am filing a 1040SR.  It has a capital gain on Schedule D (sold a house).  The taxable amount is $37,000 and the Turbo tax show $0 Federal tax owed.  According to the tax table, I have to pay a $4000+ on Federal tax.  There is something wrong with the program calculation.  How to fix this?  Thank you.

Was the house a principal residence? 


A seller who has owned and used a home as a principal residence for at least 2 of the last 5 years before the sale can exclude from income up to $250,000 of gain, $500,000 for joint filers. TurboTax will help you determine your exclusion.


To enter, follow these steps:

  • Under the Federal menu, choose Wages & Income
  • Expand the menu for Less Common Income
  • Click Start/Revisit next to Sale of Home (gain or loss)
  • Enter the information on the screens that follow

No, it is a rental.
