Sale of rental property - improvements

Level 3

I understand the rules associated with the sale of a rental property but I'm not familiar with the program entries in Pro Series.  In this case a property was sold for 180,000.  Over the years this property had several improvements that were depreciated also.  Do you allocate this sale price to all the components of the sale? House, roof, windows, etc? Want to make sure these assets are correctly all listed as sales in program and not carried forward.

Thank you

The seller and the buyer have to agree on the assets and the value.  You then apply that information to the clients return.

I usually apply the overall sales price to the sale of the building and then sell the other assets for $0. It's easier that way. If you want to allocate the sales price to each asset based on their relative overall cost, I suppose that's another option. Too much work for me though. Just don't forget to check the "complete disposition" box on the Sch E worksheet!!
