She is "Me" for all of my tax preparing (regular.. self employed.. selling of house and thru a divorce) 42years.. I read on this site some years ago that I would have to pay tax on it if I sold my house.. so I have come back here to post my question.. but will continue to research in case I don't get a correct answer

Check the form for report the sale of a residence, and I think that's where you find the part on dealing with properties that have been depreciated for business purposes.
