Robin D :

Hello and thank you for using Just Answer,
Unfortunately you would pay tax on any gain form the sale unless the property was your main home for 2 out of the last 5 years prior to the sale.

Robin D :

The gain would be the difference in the cost (plus improvements) and the sales price (less cost to sale).

Robin D :

Minnesota includes all net capital gains income in taxable income and subjects it
to the same tax rates as apply to other income.

Robin D :

Please let me know before you rate if you have any further info to add to your question.
