Orlando FL Real Estate Market Trends for June 2014

July 25th, 2014 by tisner

If you sold your primary residence and made a profit, you may be able to exclude that profit from your taxable income. Here’s how it works.

Individuals can exclude up to $250,000 in profit from the sale of a main home (or $500,000 for a married couple) as long as you have owned the home and lived in the home for a minimum of two years. Those two years do not need to be consecutive. In the 5 years prior to the sale of the house, you need to have lived in the house for at least 24 months in that 5-year period. In other words, the home must have been your principal residence.

Just like calculating capital gains, the formula for calculating the gain or loss involves subtracting your cost basis from your selling price.

The formula for calculating your cost basis on your main home is as follows:

Purchase price

+ Purchase costs (title & escrow fees, real estate agent commissions, etc.)

+ Improvements (replacing the roof, new furnace, etc.)

+ Selling costs (title & escrow fees, real estate agent commissions, etc.)

– Accumulated depreciation (for example, if you ever took the office in the home deduction)

= Cost Basis
And then calculating your profit or loss would be:

Selling price

– Cost Basis

     = Gain or Loss
