Investors and rental owners

The Legal Expenses would be used to reduce any applicable Capital Gain on the sale of a Principal Residence. If you occupied the home for all of the time that you owned it there would not be a Capital Gain and therefore the legal expenses would not be helpful. You will need to indicate that you disposed of a property in 2016 under the "Income" tab and "Investments" then check the last box, "Disposed of a Property".

If any of the legal expenses related to efforts to obtain spousal support you could deduct that amount separately.
