For a couple, this could be $500,000 if filing a joint return. No doubt being able to exclude as much as $500,000 of the gain can make an enormous change in regards to your tax liability and for many, that is the best option. There are a few basic rules and guidelines that should be followed in order to make sure you qualify for the exclusion.
