    Thank you for this question, Lambchops.

    This is a normal capital investment when reporting on your tax return. You will have a sales price and a cost basis like you would have with a stock transaction. The loss will be calculated by a tax service provider since the cost basis will be greater than the sales price. There is a yearly limit on deducting capital losses of $3,000. Any excess loss above this amount from this sale will carry forward until it is all deducted, or you report capital gains that will absorb the loss in any tax year.
