Capital Gains Calculator


Want to calculate how much profit you can make before paying capital gains tax?

Use HomeGain's Capital Gains Calculator to determine if your gain is tax free or how much capital gains tax is owed from the sale of a property. The current federal limit on how much profit you can make on the sale of your principal residence (that you have held for at least 2 years) before you pay capital gains tax is $500,000 for a married couple and $250,000 for a single homeowner. However, if you are moving due to job relocation, a change in health, or some other unforeseen circumstance, you may be eligible for partial exclusion even if you have owned the home for less than 2 years. There are some limits. Consult your tax advisor. Looking to sell your house? Check home prices and connect with a local realtor to sell your current house and to buy a new one.
