Les say that (to make the math easy) the house was urchased for 100000 and sold for 200,000 there would be a 100,000 gain

So each child owned 70 / 5 = 14%This means that they each have a .14 x 100000 = $14,000 gainto report (given that assumtion)

Capital gain = sales price minus basisand basis is purchase price (or the puchase price of the giver, if this was gifted to them) plus any improvements

Ok, I still don't see you coming into the chat here ... but yes, the children will have a reportable gain if the house was sold for more than it's basis (what the owners have in it, so to speak).If they help foor more than one year, this IS a long-term gain.Long term gains are taxed based on the household's total taxable income for the tx year (of which the capital gain IS a part)Long-term gains and qualified dividends taxed at0% if taxable income falls in the 10% or 15% marginal tax brackets15% if taxable income falls in the 25%, 28%, 33%, or 35% marginal tax brackets20% if taxable income falls in the 39.6% marginal tax bracket
