Customer Question

I owned two pieces of property in a condominium association, one I lived in the other was just land. I sold both last year, the residence for exactly what we paid, the non residence for a loss. Can I claim the loss in any way on my taxes?
JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?
Customer: The loss was $23,000. We are retired and have a pension, if it matters.
