We own a rental home. We owned the land for 8 yrs. We just finished the house in November 2011. If we sell it, do we pay lower capital gains because we owned the land over a year or will the tax be calculated based on whent he house was built which was less than a year ago?


Expert Mark Anderson's Answer:

You should probably do a calculation on the land and the rental home.  The land sale would be long-term capital gain while the rental home would be short-term capital gain.  I hope this answers your question.  Thank you.
