In general - that will be long term capital gain - taxed at reduced rates.

You will need to determine your gain which is calculated as

(sale price) MINUS (adjusted basis)

Your basis on inherited property is the fair market value of the property at the time the decedent passed away back in 1990

Then - you add improvement expenses and subtract accumulated depreciation.

Add sale expenses.

That will be your adjusted basis.

The gain may be partially taxed at zero percent and partially at 20% - depending on your TOTAL income, filing status, deductions, etc.

Let me know if you need any help with estimation.

You may need to do historical apprasal for that.

Based on comparable sales at that time.
