Re: Net Investment Income Tax questions

As long as you both lived in the house for at least 2 of the last 5 years, you can exclude $500k of gain on a joint return. Both spouses do not have to own the house for both of them to get the exclusion on a joint return.

It's less than a mile east of where Carefree Highway and I-17 meet. Just a few miles south of Anthem. Walking distance (half a mile or less...okay, not walking distance in 118F ;-)) to about 10 restaurants, a gym, grocery store, couple bars, coffee [more]

Goofy, thanks for ideas about moving the sink, I will look into that!

The cabinets are fine and functional, yes. And it seems more and more likely we're not going to rip them out. But yes, I am going to look on Craigslist for appliances. I did some initial scouting and already saw one ad where someone was selling their [more]

But I do have one idea. Are either of the dead corners accessible from the back? Perhaps one side of the U shaped kitchen is a peninsula?
