I don't think so, either, but as Scott said, consult a CPA to be sure. What you could do if the land was being held for investment is a tax deferred exchange, known as a 1031 exchange. You basically take the proceeds of the sale and roll them over into another "like-kind" investment property, which could be income or commercial property, another piece of land, or other real estate other than your personal residence. There are lots of rules to do this successfully, but it's a viable way to defer (not avoid) taxes on the gain.
