Reader question: We purchased a house with our son 8 years ago. We rented it out for 4 years and then my son moved in but we (my husband and I) continued to receive rent from some of the bedrooms my son rented out to cover our mortgage. We have now sold our 50% share to our daughter-in-law so now my son and his wife own the house and are living in it. They plan to live there for quite a few years and renovate it. How does Capital Gains affect him once he sells it (maybe in 10 years)?
