Dear Friend, Hello and welcome...

rakhivasavada :

Kindly remain online as I prepare your reply...

rakhivasavada :

From what I understand from your question... YES.. that should be your rental home you sold off. The figure of 100000 is the adjusted basis after your sisters share was bought out. So are correct in understanding this.

Ok so far ok. But line 18 of form 8824 ASKS

Adjusted basis of like-kind property your gave up, net amounts paid to other party plus any exchange expenses NOT use in line 15. What is Adjusted basis?

Expert:  rakhi.v replied 4 years ago.
Dear Friend,

Again, from what I understand, it should be 80000, your adjusted basis before you bought out your sister's share.

Hope this helps.....
Warm Regards
