Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. Unfortunately, the reinvestment of the money is no longer relevant with regard to the taxation of gains. You can reduce the gain by all the closing costs, including govt. fee and commissions. Plus, of course, the gain is based not only on the sale price (reduced by those costs), but also reduced by your basis in the property (i.e., your purchase property plus any improvements).
