Ok, you asked for it and you get it. And yes, I was wrong about the dates again, but I believe she still meets the use test.

1. The date she bought the property.
May 31st 2001 closing date.
2. The date she moved in, establishing it as her primary residence.
She actually moved into the property in April 2001 prior to closing. This was because the seller was a friend and was being relocated. (Sorry, don't have exact date)
3. The date she moved out, thus terminating its use as her primary residence.
Sept 1st 2003
4. The date she sold it.
Closed April 29th 2006

My apologies for not providing this info right up front. To be honest I didn't know I would get such an overwhelming response!

Greatly appreciate the input.
