The Tax Implications of Selling Your Home
The profit that is creating by selling your property can be yours, tax free, as long as you meet the requirements.
- up to $250,000 for an individual or
- $500,000 for a married couple
Keep in mind that you would have to have lived in your house as a primary residence for at least 2 years of the last 5 years.
This does not apply if your property is an investment property. Investing in a 1031 exchange can help defer capital gains.
Always check with your accountant in order to understand the full impact that selling your home.
