Sale of 2nd Home

I am wondering how the sale of a 2nd home will affect my 2018 taxes.  I recall (somewhat) that if you sold a home and then reinvested this amount into another home within a year you did not have to pay any taxes provided the home (or the amount over the adjusted cost of the home we paid for) we buy is at or above the amount we profited from the sale of the home.  Where can I read about this situation?

Sale of 2nd Home

Long ago,  when you sold your personal residence and purchased a new personal residence for the same or more money, you didn't have to pay taxes on any gains.  This was only for the personal residence in which you live, not second homes.....and that rule was eliminated back the mid-1990's.
