Dear fellow Fools,My question deals with the selling of a house. Recently, I sold my house and purchased a new one. We lived in the old house for over 5 years. We payed 35,000 for the house and sold it for 50,000. My question is:Do I have to pay taxes on the capital gain from the sale or am I exempt according to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997?I file my taxes married filing jointly. The reason for this question is because I plan on reducing my federal witholdings while ensuring I still am paying enough in to pay my taxes. The excess will be invested so that I can reap the benifits instead of allowing Uncle Sam using my money. (Like he really needs it). Thanks for reading about my situation.RaydudeP.S. Fools Rule
