We have just moved, and I don't have access to things yet. An interesting question came up, will a woman whose husband died more than two years ago still qualify for the $500,000 exemption on sale of her home? The thought was that if the husband died within the previous two years, she would qualify for the $500,000 exemption, but I don't know of this for sure. surely she would qualify if she sold in the year of his death.
