Report this transaction on Sch D.  If a primary residence you may be entitled to claim the Section 121 exclusion (500K Joint or 250K single)

Why would you burn up that exclusion for an easement?

Remember - keep 6 feet 3.28 inches away from everyone. I like that extra 3.28 inches - just to be safe.

Reduce the basis of the property in the amount of the easement.  If payment exceeds basis, you have a gain.  There is no IRS form for showing this accurately, so to play "Trick the Computer," put it on Schedule D with the cost equal to the payment amount.
