Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.
You are correct...the $25,000 you received from the sale will be tax free
Further you are correct, you will be able to use the loss from the sale of this asset on your tax return in 2013.
Great, thank you.
Is there anything else you need clarification on, or need assistance with?
If satisifed, please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today
