How to "suspend" depreciation on rental property that has
been converted to primary residence and will not be sold for
at least two years?

How do I "suspend " the yearly depreciation calculations in
Schedule "E" and save the accumulated depreciation for use
when the property is sold?

(I have been using Turbo Tax Pro, Schedule "E" to track
yearly depreciation on a rental property. In July 2003 I
converted the rental property to my primary residence. It
will be at least two years, August 2005, before I sell the
property)

On the date you remove the property from being used for
rental, depreciation stops. When you sell such property, you
must recapture as ordinary income the depreciation from a
specific day in May 1997 thru the date of final rental use.
