Hi bgd!

Welcome to forums!

As far as I know, you will be liable for paying the capital gains taxes for the amount of profit that you gained from the sale of the property.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Welcome bgd,

As far as I know, age does not impact whether capital gains are taxed or not. As per IRC Sec. 121, if you owned and used the property for 24 months out of the last 60 months, then you can exclude up to $250,000 of capital gains if you're single and $500,000 if married filing jointly. If you have owned or used your property as your principal residence for less then 24 months, then you won't be able to use this exemption.
