Hi - I love this site and have gleemed and learned a great deal from the discussion boards. I recently sold (12/19/05) a condo. My grandmother was living there and we moved it into my name before she got sick and had to go into a home. I claimed interest deduction but no depreciation as a second home on the last three years taxes. During the closing, the lawyers asked if this was my primary residence and I stated no - they then put down investment property for IRS reporting. I told them it was a second home and they said the form only has two choices : primary or investment. Has anyone any advice on this? I am trying to estimate the taxes owed. Thanks
