"...want an honorable Realtor your search is over" "Our experience in buying our first home was easy and enjoyable thanks to the help of Don Shurts." Eric & Shannon - Dayton, OH Read Quote > View All Quotes >
"Don and Cyndi sold our home in Dayton when we were told by friends and family to hold onto our hats because houses just don't sell in Dayton for market value these days. Well, the naysayers had never met Don and Cyndi! They sold our house so quickly I hadn't even started thinking about packing. Closing came and went without any trouble. We experienced none of the horror stories I've heard about from people who used other agents. We looked at many different houses with both of them, and in the end, we found the house in the area we wanted in the price range we wanted. You need to call Don and Cyndi today!"

Tax Considerations >Tax Implications of Selling Your House
Most of my clients profit from selling their homes, and they often have questions about capital gains tax.
When you sell your primary residence, you are not taxed on your profit if (1) you have lived in the home for two out of the last five years and (2) your gain does not exceed $250,000 as a single taxpayer or $500,000 as a married couple filing jointly. Gains above these limits are taxed at the current rate of 15% for higher income taxpayers and 5% for lower income taxpayers. In 2008 the 15% rate will continue for higher income taxpayers; while the 5% lower income rate will drop to 0% for the 2008 tax year only. On January 1, 2009, the long-term capital gains tax rates will once again be 15% and 5% through 2010.
Homeowners can use this tax-free provision every two years. As set forth in the American Job Creation Act of 2004, properties converted from a 1031 exchange property into a primary residence must be held and used as a primary residence for at least five years to qualify for the tax exemption.
Consult your tax accountant for more detailed information regarding your particular circumstance.
