FAQ: I am married to three wives in terms of customary law. My wives stay in three different homes that I own. Which home is my primary residence for CGT purposes?

Following the coming into force of the Recognition of Customary Marriages Act, 120 of 1998, on 15 November 2000, each of your wives is recognised as a spouse. You will have to choose which of the three residences is to be regarded as your primary residence. Bear in mind that a person may not claim a primary residence exclusion for more than one residence at a time.
