Capital Gains Tax Rates

The maximum tax rate on net long-term capital gains is 20% in 2020 for individuals above the top income tax bracket threshold. For the middle brackets it is 15%. Investments must be held for more than one year to qualify for these preferential rates. Gains on property held for one year or less are treated as short-term capital gains, subject to tax at the same rates as ordinary income.
