4thebird: "we have a rental property that one of the spouses died and would like to sell. It has been fully depreciated so we would like to sell it. some one said we would not have to be taxed on 50% because he died and she can get 1/2 of it, not taxed?"

1. We, who?

2. One of whose spouses?

Who owns the property? And how is the deceased related to any of the owners?

Regards, JAFO
