Susan -

It appears your parents were full of good intentions but created a mess for you which may cost you significantly in the tax department. Here is how/why.

Mistake #1 - your father adding you on the deed prior to his death.

Mistake #2 - your mother adding you on the deed via Life Estate.

If your name was not on the deed, when your parents died you could have immediately sold their homes and likely paid $0 in taxes. (Your basis is established on the date you inherited the property and you would only have to pay taxes on any gains (if any) incurred while you owned the property.)

Example: Dad dies without your name on the deed, you inherit the house via will or probate. Within a few weeks, you list the home with an agent and it sells for $200,000 ..... you pay $0 in income taxes because you are deemed to have inherited a property with a market value of $200K (this is your basis).. no gains while you owned it.)

If your dad adds your name to the deed, before he died ... you became an owner with him and his basis becomes your basis. So if he paid $75,000 for it years ago ... that is what your cost in the property is. So now, when he passes you list the home with an agent and it sells for $200,000 .... you will owe taxes on the $125,000 gain incurred by selling the home ($200K minus your basis)

Under the Life Estate, you are deemed to become an owner of the property the day the document was signed .... so you also assumed your mother's basis in her property and will have to pay taxes on any gains from her basis.

As far as your mentioning rolling profits from the sale of a home into another home to avoid taxes .... that was the old rule and tax law changed in 1997. Under the current law, you can shelter gains from the sale of your personal home of $250,000 (single filer) or $500,000 (married filing joint) regardless of what you do with the money.

Notice, that sheltering was only on your personal residence and since residency requirements are based on your living there 2 of the last 5 years ... you can only claim this exemption 2 yrs after you last used it.

So you can shelter the sales of your home, but not the 2 you inherited.

1031 like kind exchanges apply to investment properties, but it doesn't appear to apply to your situation.

Find a good tax person to walk you through your options. The longer you wait the more limited your options will be.

Hello Sandy,
Listings are sent to Trulia through a variety of feed sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party feed providers, or directly from an MLS. Please cancel your listing at the source.

Your listing will remove from Trulia within 24 hours once removed from the source.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Mmayette,
The house itself. Your goal should be to remove as much of your stuff as reasonable to expose the home and not your furniture, collections, decorations etc. The three D's are Declutter, Depersonalize and Disassociate. I wrote a blog post on this and have attached a link below. It goes into much more detail and should be helpful. Best of luck! ... more
