Glossary Capital Gains

Capital gains refer to the increase in value of a capital asset (e.g., shares of stock). In short, you have a capital gain if you sell a capital asset for more than you spent to buy it. Long-term capital gains are taxed at lower rates than ordinary income, and are thus often viewed as tax advantaged.
