You never need to report to the IRS when you move, or when you discontinue using a property as rental property and start using it as a primary residence.
The only time you will report anything to the IRS is if you continue to use the property as a rental or when the property is eventually sold.
Thank you Bustos
Hello again Bustos,
Yes, you will still file Schedule E to report your rental income and expenses for how every many months it remained a rental in 2009. Then starting in 2010 you will just discontinue filing Schedule E and will not be required to do anything until you either sell the property or once again convert it to a rental.
Thanks Bustos, and let me know if you have more questions.
