CCH Federal Taxation Basic Principles

17 of  66

Example.

John has owned his principal residence for several years.  On January 1, 20x1, he marries Tina.  After one year of sharing a principal residence, the marriage turns sour, John moves into an apartment and they divorce.  Pursuant to a divorce decree, John transfers ownership in the house to Tina on December 31, 20x1 and she immediately sells it at a $300,000 gain.  Although she did not own the residence for two years, Tina can claim a $250,000 exclusion.  She is deemed to have owned the house as her ex-spouse owned it, thus satisfying the two-out-of-five-year ownership requirement.
