Does it make a difference tax difference what state I live in?

I live in Illinois, not California. If I sell my condo for $155,000, do I have to invest all the profit in a new place?

Hello Marie,

See our article, "Could your residence be the ultimate tax shelter?"

Illinois appears to follow the federal tax law on the exclusion of gain from the sale of a principal residence.

Good luck!
