So normally we would have gotten our taxes done in March during my spring break but apparently we were a bit delayed making our appointment. I'm glad that we finally got the taxes done with a small refund. What we also learned was because we moved back to the house that we had rented for the last 3 years, we would have to live there for FIVE years not 2 like we originally thought**. Now we want to leave ASAP. The market is HOT and we're probably going to have a hard time finding something because our price point is going super fast and usually $5-10k above asking price due to market. We need to pack so we can move. We have a trip planned mid-May and once we're back we're kicking it into high gear. There's quite a bit of stuff that we need to go through and figure how what to get rid of and etc. The biggest challenge that I have to deal with is navigating getting rid of my Dad's partially restored truck. He's been gone for almost 12 years and it's been in my garage since before his death. I don't know how to get it gone and my dream would be for someone to buy it and restore it and sharing pictures of it but I doubt I can find it. It's not a fancy truck and very niche. My siblings need to help and if they don't, it's possible it will be scrapped.

We meet with the realtor on Tuesday and we should know more.

**We have heard from dearly concerned friends that we should double check this but I expect it's true.

    Yes, it's true. They changed the tax law several years ago, but few seem to realize. It depends on the situation/details but there is no longer a simple "2 year" rule like there used to be. I presume your tax professional knows better than your friends.

    Good Luck!

    Not sure what kind of truck you have, but here's my thought -- look to see if there are car collectors out there for that sort of make and see if anyone would do what you want -- restore and share photos.

    Hope you can find the answer on your home and living there for a certain amount of years.
