You have a very common situation with a "phantom" capital gain.  You mention living in Mexico for 10 years, do you have a tourist visa or another immigration document?  If you have a residente temporal or residente permanente you may be able to qualify for the capital gains exemption and not pay the $33,000 tax.  If you only have a tourist visa you can get a temporary or permanent resident visa and perhaps avoid the payment of the tax.

I can respond to any question related to Mexican Law and common business practices in Mexico. I can also compare and contrast between the American and Mexican legal systems.
