In other words, is the tax prorated for, let's say 1.5 years in the same house, instead of 2, which I've heard what you have to have for no tax on the gain. The tax law permits the tax to be prorated, but only if the sale is for employment reasons, health reasons or due to an "unforseen circumstance." I don't think that "I want a bigger house" would qualify as an unforseen circumstance. Do you want a bigger house so badly that you can't wait another 6 months?Good Luck,JDOyster
