Depends on whether it's the taxpayer's main home or a business property.

If it's the main home, then 8979 with F checked

If it's a business property (rental, investment, etc.), then 4797.

If you're asking where to enter it in ProSeries, click that awesome green "Where do I enter" button and type "1099-S." It should take you straight there.

Happy filing 🙂

What happens if it's personal use property, but not the sale of the main home?  I have a client who received a 1099-S for selling a condo that was used rent free by their children for 9 years and then the condo was sold.  Where do I enter a 1099-S in this scenario?

8949 to Schedule D. A gain is taxable. A loss is not allowed.

Thanks.  I had it structured like that, but ProSeries references the Home Sale Worksheet to the 8949 as "Main Home Sale: xxxxxxxxxxx".  The Main Home Sale prefix was throwing me.
