Reading these threads, and I've started a few about similar topics, I wonder how many people either intentionally or not, never do the depreciation recapture. I'm willing to bet it is a decent number. I see on a variety of sites where people think if it didn't benefit them, then there is no need to recapture it. Sadly that isn't true.

(BTW, my house and previous rental closes in a bit over 2 weeks, sold above list price with no repairs post home inspection, strong market screws buyers but aided me. So I've gone from having 2 SFHs to being homeless.)

And unlike the OP I have a ton of gains both from stocks and the house. I'll be writing the largest check outside of a home purchase in my life to the IRS :(
