This answer was rated:

i am self employed general contractor, sole proprietor. Built and sold one house in 2008. Received 1099 form for sale proceeds. How do I report gain on sale on my 1040 tax return?

You will report the sale proceeds on Sch C as your business receipts and enter the cost of building the house as Cost of goods sold on Sch C. You will also expense other necessary and ordinary business expense and pay tax on the net income from this activity. Note that you will also be subject to self employment tax on the net income from this activity.

If I was an LLC how would it be reported?

If it is a single member LLC and has not made a S election than this would be reported on Sch C as a single member LLC is a disregarded entity for tax purposes.
