Partially Inherited Home and then Sale
« on: January 05, 2018, 06:48:16 AM »
I took Tax Law, I should have some basic understanding of this but here we are. Any help would be appreciated :)

In August 2012, I moved to Virginia and my dad bought a town home for me to live in as my primary residence for $119,000.  In August 2013, my dad gifted me 10% of it. In December 2015, he passed. In September 2017 (his estate took a while to get all straightened out), I inherited the remaining 90%, in December 2017 for $151,000.  What do I use as my acquisition date, the date I received the 10% or the date I received the remainder?  I know about the exclusion but I'm trying to figure out if I qualify based on my partial ownership in 2013.

Dude, this is why there are actual Tax Lawyers and Certified Public Accountants. There's too much down side to risk fucking this up. Pay for a highly experienced professional's advice.
