Realized Capital Gains

with PNC Investments

How It Works

Selling a capital asset creates capital gains. How can I reduce my tax bill?

Things to know

Selling a capital asset after owning it for less than a year results in a short-term capital gain, which is taxed as ordinary income. Short-term capital gains are taxed just like your ordinary income. Ordinary taxes can be as high as 37%, depending on your tax bracket.

Things to know

Selling a capital asset after owning it for more than one year results in a long-term capital gain tax. Long-term capital gains are typically taxed at a rate lower than the ordinary income. More long-term capital gains will not cause your ordinary income to be taxed at a higher rate.

Working with PNC Investments
