I recently moved back into a rental property, June 1998, after 25 years as a rental. I want to establish primary residence to qualify for the $500,000 tax exclusion on the sale of this property. I know that the time period is 2 years, but is that 2 years as in 24 months, or 2 tax years 1998 and 1999?
