Hello all, hoping someone can assist with some general questions regarding taxable amounts related to the sale of a rental property. It was in service from 2013-2020, long term. This is the only rental property we owned.

The full purchase price was $137,932, the total depreciation amount over the 7 years is $40,482- so adjusted costs basis should be $97,450. As a side note, TaxAct (my tax software) never prompted to separate the building and land values, so I have been depreciating the entire cost for 7 years. Not sure if that is an issue or if/how I need to address that now !

The full sale price was $195,017 with the following reductions-
$361.57 - county tax prorated
$300.00 - title/deed release work (closing atty)
$280.00 - title settlement fee
$7875 - realtor commissions
$1404.50 - county excise tax
$107,851.62 - mortgage & equity line payoff
$53.00 - termite inspection
----
76,891.31 - Net to Seller

My question is really, what is my taxable income here as I'm not certain which of the above reductions I can use to reduce the profit? I'm grateful for any guidance provided, thank you!

Time to read up on "Depreciation Recapture." But better than that is
for you is to have a tax pro guide you through this.

As the TV commercial said years ago "Ask the box"
