geocarw: "Single family rental house owned for 20+ years and fully depreciated. Hailstorm last spring necessitated replacement of entire roof. Insurance covered all but $200 of costs (Roofer $5400-5200 Insurance Co). I have read and re-read Form 4684-Casualties and Thefts and Instructions. I'm at a loss on how to complete SECTION B—Part I Lines 20 on. My attempt using TaxACT:
Line 20-adjusted property basis... zero(0)"
Not a response to you question, but your post causes me to ask how does a SFH ever have a zero basis?
SFH sits on land, worth something (even 20+ years ago), and is not depreciated (as I understand the rules).
