Capital Gains

Capital gains is the difference between an asset's purchase price and selling price, when the selling price is greater. It is considered a gain when there is an increase in the value of an asset as a result of price appreciation and is realized through the proceeds obtained on its sale. In long-term capital gains (on assets held for a year or longer), the taxes imposed are at a lower rate compared to ordinary income.
