Need help with capital gains question. Sold my residential rental property for a gain of $17,145. Need to know the proper forms to fill out. Also, trying to determine tax on line 44. Line 43 is $12843. Using the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet on pg 37 of the 1040 instruction book, it figures I owe $0. Is this correct?

Welcome, THANK YOU for using Just Answer. My goal is to help make your life...a little...LESS taxing.You would use the Form 8949 and the Schedule D. The form 8949 should be completed first.Link to form 8949/:http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8949.pdfhttp://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040sd.pdfLink to form Schedule D:http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sd.pdf------------------------------As for the capital gain calculations, as I don't know the required information to calculate the gain, you may want to use a capital gain calculator.

Does form 4797 apply at all?
For 4797 is for the sale of property used in for your trade or business. SEE INSTRUCTIONS:http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i4797.pdf
Thanks for the link. I'm still confused. There is a table on page on of the 4797 instructions Column (a) Line 2 (a) states that for a residential rental property sold at a gain, I need to fill out 4797 Part III (1250). Please explain
Hello again,My apologies, I overlooked the word rental in your initial inquiry. Yes, the form 4797 is also used since it was a rental property.
So, I need 4797, 8949 and Schedule D? What information do you need to help me figure my tax on line 44? Line 43 was $12,843, 9b was 0, Schedule D Line 15 and 16 is $17,145, Not filing 4952, Filing Single $34,500, Tax tables figure for $12,843 is $1,499. I"ve done the Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet on page 37 of 1040 instructions several times and I keep coming up with $0. Is that correct?
This is correct, the Forms 4797, 8949, and Schedule D. It is possible that your capital gains tax could be 0. If your tax bracket is either 10 or 15%, the long term capital gains rate is 0%. As for the calculations, I would have to pretty much do a mock return to give you the correct figures, respectfully, XXXXX XXXXX have the time to do a mock return right now.
