How does the calculation work if two families are combining a household in the replacement property. For example: The first is 55+ and has a home with a basis of $550. The 2nd family (adult children) are well under 55 and their home has a basis of say $300. They both sell and together they buy a 1,000,000 property. How does the calculation work, or is it not even eligible???

Thanks for reaching out, Tina. In your scenario, only the home with the 55+ seller will qualify...the other home will not due to the age of the seller.
