Good evening. With regard to the sale of your residence portion of this, you can exclude up to $250,000 of capital gains due to the exclusion for sale of principal residence. If there is a part of the building that is not your residence, ifyou use any of the money to purchase investment property, you should structure the sale/purchase as a like kind tax-free exchange under Code Section 1031. With respect to any sale proceeds from the non-residence sale invested in your new home, you will be subject to capital gains tax on that piece.
I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!
