Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.
You report the sale of your home on form 8949 if you are required to report. There is a worksheet in IRS publication 523 that you can use to list the expenses and see if you have a gain. It does not get sent in with the return.
If you have taxable gain on your home sale and don’t qualify to exclude, then you have to report the sale.
If you received a Form 1099-S. you must report the sale even if you have no taxable gain to report.
This gets reported on form 8949 and then you carry the gain that you cannot exclude to Schedule D.
Please let me know by posting below if you need clarification and so I know you could view the answer. If you do not require more information, a positive 5 star rating is appreciated.
Form 8949 is where you list the amounts. The sale itself is listed on 8949 form.
Glad to have assisted you
