I'm selling my house of the past 12 years and have a strange question.The buyer is using some creative financing to purchase the house. Evidently they don't have enough money for a down payment and want me to raise the price of the house to cover their down payment and closing costs. Then, at closing, they want me to give them a "gift" of their down payment. By the time the I's are dotted and the T's are crossed, I will end up with my original purchase price at closing.It sounds ok to me, but I wonder about the capital gains taxes that may be due. I'm purchasing another home before the sale of this house completes (a more expensive home). I want to make sure that I'm not going to get left holding the bag on the capital gains for the "gift".Does this make any sense? Am I worried over nothing?Thanks-Jim C.
