Hi - Prior to issuing corrective regulations in December 2002, the IRS operated under the rule that, if you used your residence for both personal and business purposes, you would be treated as having sold two separate properties for purposes of using the home sale gain exclusion: a personal residence and a business building.

...

The profit you realize on the sale of your home would be entitled to the $250,000/$500,000 exclusion, but any profit you realize on the sale of the business part of your property would be taxed.

...

But now, if the business use occurred within the same dwelling unit, the portion of your gain subject to tax is the amount of depreciation you deducted in the past as a home office expense.

...

SO now only the 11515 is recaptured. If it was straight line it's at the recapture rate of 25%. The rest of the gain is excluded under §121.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

You'll report the recapture on form 4797.

...

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

If this has helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

I hope that you’ll rate me based on my accuracy and thoroughness, rather than any good news/bad news content.

That’s the only way JustAnswer.com will compensate me for the work here.

Thanks,

Lane

Do I need to report the recapture in Part I, II, or III of Form 4797 and do I also report gross sales, adjusted basis, etc?

Part III and use only the depreciation amount as price and basis
