How do I calculate capital gains for the sale of a residence converted from a 1031 exchange?

How do I calculate the capital gains for the sale of my residence, which was converted from a 1031 exchange in 2002?

Thank you.

Hello Karlay,

I suggest that you get professional help. The tax basis (cost to compute taxable income or loss) is reduced by the deferred income from the exchange. Since the property couldn’t be personal-use property to qualify for an exchange, you might have some taxable income not eligible for exclusion relating to depreciation claimed for the previous residence and your current residence before conversion.

Good luck!
