    One time over 55 real estate tax exemption

    What is the name of your state?Florida

    I've been told that people over 55 will receive a "One Time Exemption" from paying real estate taxes when selling their primary residence. Wonder if this is true?

    That is old tax law, and is no longer true.

    The current law is that if you live in and own a primary residence for 2 out of the last 5 years, you can exclude up to $250,000 of gain on the sale if you are single, and up to $500,000 of gain on the sale if you are married filing a joint return.
