While generally the transaction is taxable, in your particular situation there is no any taxable income as you purchase the property for $450,000 and the asset was disposed for $381,978 (the Fair Market Value of Property) .

You also may not deduct your losses as that was a personal property. So generally you - you do not need to report the transaction.

If you would have a profit - you will report it on the schedule D. The form 4797 is used to report the sale of a business or rental property.

You may want to add notice to the IRS to avoid possible questions.
