In 1994 I purchased a house for $125,000. Yesterday, I sold the house for $231,000. This means I have about a $106,000 capital gain that I now have to pay taxes on.Before we get carried away, let's make sure you have a problem. Did either you or your wife use this house as your primary residence for 2 of the last 5 years? If so, none of the gain will be taxable; in fact, you don't even have to report the sale. See IRS Publication 523.If you still think you have a problem, let us know.Phil MartiVITA Volunteer
