Selling a second home

Hello Trekie1!


On the federal level you will only pay capital gains on the sale of your home if:


  • "If you have a capital gain from the sale of your main home ( and second home), you may qualify to exclude up to $250,000 of that gain from your income, or up to $500,000 of that gain if you file a joint return with your spouse."

There are other qualification according to the IRS, please see following link for more details: 


I hope this helps.

Thank you for using TurboTax Live!
