We sold our primary residence last year. We are married but the net profits will likely go over $500k. Which version of Turbo Tax should I use?

We sold our primary residence last year. We are married but the net profits will likely go over $500k. Which version of Turbo Tax should I use?

SALE OF HOUSE

 

If your gain was more than  $250,000 filing Single, or more than $500,000 filing Married Filing Jointly the sale must be reported on your tax return.  Whether you re-invested the gain in to another house is irrelevant.  If you  have a Form 1099-S go to Federal>Wages and Income>Less Common Income>Sale of Home (gain or loss)

If you owned and lived in the home as your primary residence for at least 2 of the last 5 years on the date of the sale, you do not have to report the home sale if the gain is less than $250K filing Single, or less than $500K filing Married Filing Jointly (and you both owned and lived in the home for at least 2 years).

  • If you are using online TT, you need Premier or Self-Employed software to report the 1099-S
