Sales Tax on Real Estate?

real estate tax1 150x150 Sales Tax on Real Estate?Misinformation has been circulating again on the Internet and in e-mails recently that the healthcare reform bill passed last year includes a sales tax on real estate.  This information is incorrect, and C.A.R. would like to clarify the information.  The new law imposes a 3.8 percent tax for households in the top tax brackets on “unearned income.”  This includes capital gains.  However, this will not impact the exclusion on capital gains earned from the sale of a primary residence up to $250,000 for individuals and up to $500,000 for married couples.  The 3.8 percent tax will only apply to capital gains above the normal exclusion.
