Can heir avoid capital gains taxes on sale of parents’ home?

November 25, 2012 |

This tax bill was avoidable. Instead of transferring the property to their children’s names, the parents should have waited to bequeath it after they died.

Dear Liz: My wife and her brother are selling their parents’ home. The parents transferred the deed to their children’s names years ago. My wife should receive about $ 85,000 from the sale. Our yearly income (one salary; she’s a stay-at-home mom) is around $ 75,000. My wife is worried about capital gains taxes and wants to reinvest in another real estate property because she’s heard that that will eliminate the capital gains tax. Is that correct? I would really rather invest that money in our current home (finish the basement into a family room, update some items) and pay off our car loan than worry about another property to take care of. What do you think?
