Not a response to you question, but your post causes me to ask how does a SFH ever have a zero basis? It can't. Or more correctly, it shouldn't. But since we have to deal with depreciation that was allowed or allowable, if the depreciation [incorrectly] allowed equals the original cost, the basis will be zero.There's also the issue of timing. MACRS started in 1987. And I think that residential real estate has always been 27.5 year property. Therefore, this year - 2013 - would be the final year of depreciation for residential real estate placed in service in 1987.--Peter
