Clients ask me a lot of questions about capital gains and how it works. Watch this video or read below. Several variables work into this calculation:1. Property Tax Base AKA Purchase Price2. Sale price of the property3. Total $ of home improvements made (kitchen remodel, new windows etc), NOT maintenance** 4. If you own the property as a married couple or single person ($500k/$250K tax exemption)5. Your tax bracket** (based on income level) which INCLUDES your home sale profits for that tax year6. Cost of sale**Please consult your financial planner or CPA for the best answer in your situation. If you need a recommendation, please contact me.Read more about selling your home in the IRS Publication 523, "Selling Your Home"Read about capital gains and the different tax ratesIf an original owner of the home is now deceased, please consult the Step-up Basis page to see if you can benefit from this tax law.
