What happens if I dispose of my primary residence in a joint estate, and I have a capital gain in excess of R1,5 million during the 2012 year of assessment?

The disposal of a primary residence that falls within the joint estate of spouses married in community of property is treated as having been made in equal shares by each spouse and the primary residence exclusion will be apportioned between them .(paragraphs 14 and 45(2) of the Eighth Schedule ).
