When you said it was sold at a $300,000 loss, does that include the depreciation that lowered the Basis? If it was originally a personal-use property and was later converted to a rental property, did you account for the possible Dual Basis rules (if that applies and you are unsure of what I mean, please post back)?
I'm also trying to wrap my head around a potential $300k rental loss on disposition of the property.
There must be some information missing here, quite possibly depreciation "allowed or allowable."
The 2016 Form 4797 might also be informative.
