Hi,Yes you will have a gain of 410,000 - 390,000 =20,000.And yes, because you haven't lived in the home for 2 years, you don't qualify for the complete exclusion BUT if it's been a year the lower LONG-TERM gain rates apply..Long-term gains and qualified dividends are taxed at0% if taxable income falls in the 10% or 15% marginal tax brackets15% if taxable income falls in the 25%, 28%, 33%, or 35% marginal tax brackets20% if taxable income falls in the 39.6% marginal tax bracket.Let me know if you have questions from here ....Lane.
