Do I qualify for the small business capital gains exclusion on retirement?

Have you sold a small business for a profit? A profit means that the sales price (proceeds) was greater than the cost of the business assets.
You are either selling your business which you operate as a sole proprietor, or you are selling your entire direct interest in a company (must be at least 10% of the shares of the company in order to qualify).
