Dear Fools,
I have a question regarding a 2-4 unit home used as part primary residence and part rental property.
1) For deduction of interest as a primary residence: Is the 100K limit apply to the total amount of loan for house, or only that portion of loan that applies to the primary residence?
2) For every 2 year Capital gains exemption: I would assume this applies only to the portion of the house used as primary residence, and one must pay capital gains on the remainder of the property.
please reply in e-mail to
