Long-Term Capital Gain

Long-Term Capital Gain Definition

Long-Term Capital Gain is a tax term relating to the profit on the sale of qualifying investments (financial instruments or depreciable business properties) that have been held for over a year. The reason of differentiating long-term and short-term capital gains is that they are taxed differently. Long-term capital gains are taxed at discounted rates, while short-term capital gains are taxed at ordinary income tax rates.
