Greetings, Bob, and welcome. You asked:<<My wife, to whom I am not legally married, and I own our home jointly. It is worth in excess of $500,000 and we are comtemplating selling it.My understanding is that a married couple can take an exemption of $500,000 while a single person can take an exemption of $250,000. Can we each take a single person exemption of $250,000 on the same house?>>Yes, as joint owners you each may use your own $250K exclusion on gains when the property is sold assuming you meet the conditions for doing so.Regards..Pixy
