Losses (Homes, Stocks, Other Property)
Question: Is the loss on the sale of my home deductible?
A loss on the sale or exchange of personal use property, including a capital loss on the sale of your home used by you as your personal residence at the time of sale, is not deductible. Only losses associated with property used in a trade or business and investment property (for example, stocks) are deductible.
