The investment was the S-Corp stock. So the S-Corp (or some other investments) would have to spin off income in order for the interest to be deductible.

In order to deduct any interest, there has to be investment income. The fact that the S-Corp sold some assets does not create investment income. It has to be dividends or "Net gains from the disposition of property held for investment". This would mean the sale of the S-Corp itself. Not its assets.

I hope this answers your questions. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer.

Thanks! Have a great week!
