Was this property your personal residence?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Originally yes but I rented it out from March 1 2017 through November 30 2017. Rent was $1000 but didn’t receive every month.

Tell me what you think
Tax Professional: Stephen G., Sr Income Tax Expert replied 1 month ago

There is no deductible loss on a sale of your personal residence.

How long did you own the property before you rented it on March 1st?

How much did you pay for the property?

Was there a mortgage on the property when it was sold by the Sheriff, & approximately what was the outstanding balance?

Owned since February 1990.
Tax Professional: Stephen G., Sr Income Tax Expert replied 1 month ago

Well, you didn't answer the remainder of my questions, but you may be surprised to learn that if there was a mortgage on the property, the lender may send you a 1099 reporting income from the debt forgiveness on the balance of the mortgage, if any, beyond the proceeds from the sale of home.
