form t2091 capital gains split between co-owners.

form t2091 capital gains split between co-owners.  My spouse and I are jointly filing.. Do we both fill out the t2091 form with 50% each?  I did it for myself at 50% but nothing shows up for my wife's turbotax.  50% of the capital gains correctly shows up on my Schedule 3,  but no amounts have shown up on my wife's Schedule 3?


If you are in Forms mode, you will need to search for PRWS. That is the Principal Residence Worksheet. 

In the third column, ensure you answer the questions in the third column (I've attached a picture for how you should be answering these). You will still need to switch over to your spouse's return and enter her cost amount and her proceeds.

If you are in Easy Mode, under Income & Expenses => Principal Residence, ensure that both yourself and your spouse is checkmarked on the first page. Then it should show you the summary page. If on the summary page, there is only one property entered for you, you can add property for your spouse. BUT when they ask you "who disposed of this property?" just say only your spouse, otherwise it will duplicate the entry. Just fill out the questions and only answer from the perspective of your spouse.

If on the summary page you do see the property under your spouse, then you may need to go in and edit the information in there.

If the property was your principal residence the entire time, then you should not see any gains reported on the Schedule 3.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
