English Topic Number - Capital Gains and Losses Almost everything you own and use for personal or investment purposes is a capital asset. Examples include a home, personal-use items like household furnishings, and stocks or bonds held as investments. When you sell a capital asset, the difference between the adjusted basis in the asset and the amount you realized from the sale is a capital gain or a capital loss.
Generally, an asset's basis is its cost to the owner, but if you received the asset as a gift or inheritance, refer to Topic No. For information on calculating adjusted basis, refer to PublicationBasis of Assets.
You have a capital gain if you sell the asset for more than your adjusted basis. You have a capital loss if you sell the asset for less than your adjusted basis. Losses from the sale of personal-use property, such as your home or car, aren't tax deductible.
Short-Term or Long-Term To correctly arrive at your net capital gain or loss, capital gains and losses are classified as long-term or short-term. Generally, if you hold the asset for more than one year before you dispose of it, your capital gain or loss is long-term.
If you hold it one year or less, your capital gain or loss is short-term. For exceptions to this rule, such as property acquired by gift, property acquired from a decedent, or patent property, refer to PublicationSales and Other Dispositions of Assets; or for commodity futures, see PublicationInvestment Income and Expenses.
To determine how long you held the asset, you generally count from the day after the day you acquired the asset up to and including the day you disposed of the asset. Where to Report Report most sales and other capital transactions and calculate capital gain or loss on Form Capital Gain Tax Rates If you have a net capital gain, a lower tax rate may apply to the gain than the tax rate that applies to your ordinary income.
The term "net capital gain" means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss for the year. The term "net long-term capital gain" means long-term capital gains reduced by long-term capital losses including any unused long-term capital loss carried over from previous years.
Net short-term capital gains are subject to taxation as ordinary income at graduated tax rates. Estimated Tax Payments If you have a taxable capital gain, you may be required to make estimated tax payments.
If your net capital loss is more than this limit, you can carry the loss forward to later years. Additional Information Additional information on capital gains and losses is available in Publication and PublicationSales and Other Dispositions of Assets.
If you sell your main home, refer to Topics Topic No.Long-term assets such as Property, Plant and Equipment inform you as to how much capital a business needs to spend.
