http://www.irs.gov/publications/p523/index.html will give you a lot of information on capital gains
of most interest to you, however will be this section:
You can exclude up to $250,000 of the gain (other than gain allocated to periods of nonqualified use) on the sale of your main home if all of the following are true.
You meet the ownership test.
You meet the use test.
During the 2-year period ending on the date of the sale, you did not exclude gain from the sale of another home.
For details on gain allocated to periods of nonqualified use, see Nonqualified Use , later.
If you and another person owned the home jointly but file separate returns, each of you can exclude up to $250,000 of gain from the sale of your interest in the home if each of you meets the three conditions just listed.
You may be able to exclude up to $500,000 of the gain (other than gain allocated to periods of nonqualified use) on the sale of your main home if you are married and file a joint return and meet the requirements listed in the discussion of the special rules for joint returns, later, under Married Persons .
While the MLS records are not electronic for that time period, there are some ways we can use to determine the value. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
