Capital Gain Tax Rates

Capital gain is when an investment appreciates in value above the original purchase price. Tax is owed when that investment is sold (realized). A capital gain may be short-term (one year or less) or long-term (more than one year) and must be claimed on income taxes.


Short-term gains are taxed at the sames rates as regular income. Long-term gains are subject to the following special rates:
