Myth About 3.8% Tax on Real Estate Sales

Myth About 3.8% Tax on all Real Estate Sales Will Not Die...

A false rumor about a transfer tax on all real estate sales is once again making the rounds on the Internet and in e-mails. The information being forwarded claims that the Affordable Care Act contains a 3.8% tax on all real estate sales. Not so.

Though the act does include a 3.8% tax on some investment income, it will not come into play for the majority of home sales. First, the tax applies only to people with adjusted gross income of $200,000 ($250,000 for a joint return). Also, homeowners who sell their principal residence will still enjoy the exclusion of $250,000 of gain realized on the sale of the home ($500,000 for married couples) as long as they have lived in their primary residence 2 of the last 5 years - otherwise standard capital gains taxes apply.
