Selling A Rental Property For 145k We Have Had For Approx 20 Years. Bought The Property For $1.00. We Make 80k.

My husband and I "bought" a rental property from a realtive for $1.00...approx 20 years ago. We are selling it for 153K and after realtor fees we end up with $143800. We do have an $86,000 mortage on it. We have never lived in the house. Our income this year will be approx 80,000, maybe a little less. I am trying to figure out what our capital gains taxes will be in NY state

Your mortgage does not matter(that is, when figuring capital gains, the amount you cleared after the mortgage is irrelevant.)You bought a capital asset for $1, and you sold the capital asset for $145,000. So your capital gain would be $144.999.There may be NY exceptions for rental property, but that would take local research. One question would be: was the rental property considered a separate business, and did the separate business own the property?   ElBanditoRoso 34 months ago

Capital gains = the difference between what you bought it for and what you sell it for....prepare to pay up. You've had income/profits for 20 years....time to pay the taxman   Skippy? 34 months ago
