Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
There are two taxable events here: Sale of the primary residence and cancellation of debt. Because you received 1099S, you will have to report the sale on form 8949. It looks like you sold the house with a loss (the purchase price was more than 880K). Because you cannot claim loss on personal residence, you will have to make an adjustment in columns f and g to get the column H to 0. Your adjustment code will be H.
Regarding 1099C, if you received it in 2012, you can exclude the amount under The Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act. You will use form 982 to claim it. None of those changes will affect your 1040X, your return will be same.
Let me know if you need help with the forms or have any questions.
