This webinar will do a quick in-depth deep dive into capital gains. We will look at what they are, how do they come up, and how taxpayers can take advantage of the tax code to lessen their impact. We will start up by defining what is a capital asset. This is usually an easy question, but it can be difficult when we look at things like partnership interests and disposition of partnership interest. We will then look at holding periods. Typically, capital assets with a holding period of 1 year or more are long term and get beneficial treatment versus short-term, which is taxed at the ordinary tax rates.

We will also look at how to make the calculations for capital gains and losses while considering how it differs betweens types of entities. We will also look at the capital gains tax rates. Finally, we will finish the webinar up with a discussion of 1031 exchanges and installment sales.
