Capital Gain tax for living in home for less than two years?

We lived in our home for less than two years and are selling it and building a new home. We will be profiting $45,000. Do we have to pay a capital gain tax since we did not live here for two or more years?

Capital Gain tax for living in home for less than two years?

Yes, you will have to pay tax on the $45,000 gain from selling your home, since you lived in it for less than two years. If you have owned the home for more than one year, it will be a long-term gain, which is taxed at lower rates than ordinary income.
