What counts as a health-related move for the home sale exclusion?
You meet the requirements for a partial exclusion if any of the following health-related events occurred during your time of ownership and residence in the home:
- You moved to obtain, provide, or facilitate diagnosis, cure, mitigation, or treatment of disease, illness, or injury for yourself or a family member.
- You moved to obtain or provide medical or personal care for a family member suffering from a disease, illness, or injury.
- A doctor recommended a change in residence for you because you were experiencing a health problem.
- The above is true of your spouse, a co-owner of the home, or anyone else for whom the home was his or her residence.
