Business Tax Laws

I sold my home of 40 years in May, but needed that money before
I sold my home of 40 years in May, but needed that money before I could commit to another purchase. I bought another home in November, and now, even though I've reinvested most of the profit into the new house, I'm being told I must still pay capitol gains on the profit from the sale in May. I get a 250,000 one-time exclusion on the amount, but that doesn't do much to a 400000 profit. As a single parent struggling to keep my head above water most of my adult life, this really seems excessive. I thought I had up to a year to re-invest in another property, and now that I have purchased, I don't have the money to pay this huge amount of taxes on this so-called "income"(which I no longer have.) Is this correct??

I get a 1099-G every year and pay a monthly hosting fee for the site.

My family (my wife, son and I) has an unprofitable multi-partner
My family (my wife, son and I) has an unprofitable multi-partner Pennsylvania LLC food business, which was formed in late 2012. We stopped production in Dec 2014. Last year's loss was $16,000 on form 1120S, which we plan to pass through to my household personal K-1 taxes. So far, we have put $50,000 into the business as ‘Loan From Shareholder’. The only assets are about $4,000 worth (refrigerators, freezers, label printer, etc) in the business.
We will not continue the food business, but are thinking of writing a cookbook and have it as part of the business, but not sure if it is better to write it separately and just close the business.
We would basically like to get as much money back out of the business as possible, and not sure of the best option.
* Can we recoup any of the lost $50,000 loan as a personal tax write-off?
* If so, what do I need to modify on my business and personal taxes to make it work properly?
* Is it better to shut down the business as soon as possible, or keep it active for a cookbook entity?
* In general what are our best options?
* Anything special we should know about?
