Need help!Trying to sell my rental property at Maryland. I have 2 questionsQuestion 1: If I pay for the buyer's closing cost, am I entitled to deduct that amount from my capital gain?Question 2: Since I am no longer a Maryland resident, I have to pay an additional 7% tax for nonresident. Maryland law says if I spent 2 years in that property in the last 5 years, I can get an exemption but I do not meet that criteria, should I still apply for the exemption knowing that I will be denied?Can anybody help me out?December 05 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
