Unfortunately, there is no tax deduction available to you from this circumstance. The IRS rules do not permit the deduction of a loss on a main home. They, like the court, will view this as simply a distribution of assets between spouses incident to a divorce. The only plus I can offer is that you basis in the home has changed and will reduce the taxes on any future gain if you sell at some future date.
