Put in other expenses line 19 schedule E - Abandonment of Loan Fees upon sale, and for the amount put the unamortized balance.

tis is what Ive always done, wasnt sure if it was technically correct...youd think by putting in a disposal date on the asset entry worksheet, the software would do it for us!

I'm with you Lisa.

If I have something I can do easy and quick and it gets me to the correct, defensible answer, I just do it. If we spend a half hour looking around for the "Right Way" everytime something a little strange comes up, we'd never get done.

I figure if the way I do it doesn't artificially alter the tax in the end, I'm doing something and moving on.
