Dear Fellow Fools!I think I already have my answer but would like confirmation from another source. I live in Texas and am selling a vacant lot in Florida which has more than doubled in value in the past 4 years. I am projecting between a $158K to$154K profit which is subject to Cap Gains tax at a 20% rate. According to my estimates that means I will have a $30K+ tax debt on the property sale. My basic question is this - Is there anyway I can claim the lot as a residence in order to avoid the Cap Gains? Intended use for the lot was a retirement home for some years down the road.(But life threw me a huge curve ball & he got the house & I got the lot. So my personal investments in real estate no longer include a dwelling.) Thanks in advance for any information you can provide. I have read & read until I am blue in the face and cannot find my situation anywhere.Blessings, debbi
