By | August 26th, 2005|

A homeowner selling a portion of their lot and continuing to live in their current home wants to know what capital gains will need to be paid on the sale. You are not required to pay capital gains taxes on the sale of residential property as long as you have lived in the home for 2 of the past 5 years. The capital gains exclusion is up to $250,000 if you're single and up to $500,000 if you're married.
