report primary home sale as ordinary income, not capital gain - possible?

is it possible not to have to calculate basis for a primary residence sale?

acct thinks that all such sales must, without exception, calculate basis and report any non-excluded capital gain

but in very rare scenario, would be better to report as ordinary income if allowed

no basis calculation, etc, just straight total sale

any ideas on this? where does it say a seller must calculate basis and report as capital gain and not ordinary income?
