Hello

The owner or owners will each be listed on the sale. If your brother is listed as an owner then he too will receive a 1099S.

If one check is made to you and not split then you can send your brother his half.

The tax reporting depends on who is listed on the deed as the owner regardless of who gets some of teh proceeds.

Is your brother listed too on the deed?

You have to actively click on a rating and click submit. Smiley Faces or Stars.
When you actively click on a rating and click submit, that lets Just Answer know you were assisted and credits me for the time.

my brother is listed on the deed. I own 25% and he owns 75%. my lawyer said if she makes a check only to me she would have to give me only one 1099. I did not make enough to have to declare the gain in my taxes but if she gives me a 1099...how do I handle it?
Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 2 years ago

That is not so. If an attorney told you that they are not a tax attorney.

All owners are reported in the sale. Your brother needs to also report this as he is a listed owner too.

You report your 25% of cost and sale on your return. You cannot claim more than your legal ownership percentage.

You report on form 8949 and Schedule D unless this was used for rental then it goes on Form 4797.
