Capital Gains Calculator

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.
