Re: Anyone made this decision?

Question . .
Must 'Primary residency' and 'use-of' be filed or validated with the IRS . .* any Schedules to file?
If not, what 'primary residence' paper-work or 'proof' do you need to keep?

Maybe there's a messier but simpler solution, but does anyone see a problem with this? :-

Sell US primary residency now (last 3 years primary residence) = No tax due?

Return to UK home and primarily reside there for 2 years, then Sell = No tax due?
