Federal capital gains rate (%)

Profits you earn from the sale of most assets are taxed as capital gains by the federal government. Gains from the sale of assets held for more than a year are deemed “long-term” capital gains which are typically taxed at lower rates than gains on assets held less than for one year (short-term capital gains). The sale of investment property held for rental purposes is subject to federal capital gains tax. Find your long-term capital gains tax rate.

When calculating your tax on the appreciated value of the asset you’re selling, be sure to include any appropriate state tax with your federal capital gains tax.

Net investment income tax (%) (Obama Care Tax Rate)

In addition to federal and state capital gains taxes, high-income taxpayers may be subject to an additional surtax of 3.8% on their net investment income if their modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) exceeds certain thresholds. Net investment income includes items like interest, dividends, short and long-term capital gains, business activities that are treated as passive income, and rental income from investment property.
