Approximate taxes paid on sale of investment property

I am trying to calculate the taxes I would have to pay on a house. I bought the house 11 years ago for 370,000 have an offer for 350,000 and owe 285,000 on the house. I lived in the house for ten years and recently purchased another house to live in.

What’s your cost basis (purchase price plus major upgrades)?
You deduct cost basis from net sale. That’s your net profit, but it’s a homestead primary property there is $250k per person exemption.

If you paid 370 and sell for 350 your tax is zero since there ya no gain. Technically that’s a loss
