Capital-Gains Tax Rates and Tax Brackets


Investors who have taxable accounts—as opposed to tax-favored retirement accounts such as individual retirement accounts (IRAs) or 401(k)s—are often eligible for lower tax rates on investment income and other benefits.

When an investor sells a holding in a taxable account, the result is a capital gain or loss that is the difference between the investment’s original cost (plus adjustments) and its selling price.
