I have a condo in San Diego that I have owned since October of 2008. I lived in it from that time until October of 2009 when I joined the military. Upon joining the military I was moved around the country from October 2009 to July 2011. During this time I rented out the condo as a long-term rental.In July 2011 I was stationed back in San Diego and I returned to live in the condo from July 2011 until October 2012 when I bought a single family home and moved there. Since October 2012 until the current time, May 2014, I have been renting out the condo as a short term rental. If I were to sell the condo right now would I be subject to capital gains tax?
