What is Capital Gains Tax?

Capital gains tax is a tax on the profit that you make when you sell an asset that has increased in value. This can include investments such as stocks, real estate, or even collectible items. The tax rate on capital gains can vary depending on the type of asset and how long you held it before selling. 

In general, short-term capital gains (on assets held for a year or less) are taxed at a higher rate than long-term capital gains (on assets held for more than a year). 

Capital gains tax is in addition to income tax and is typically paid when you file your taxes for the year in which the sale occurred.
