Long-term Capital Gains Rates

The latest tax bill this year has extended through 2010 an excellent rate structure for long-term capital gains for investment assets held over 1 year as well as dividends. The highest rate of taxation on capital gains will stay at 15% through 2010. Individuals in low tax brackets (10% and 15%) will continue to get the 5% rate on capital gains through 2007 and then go to 0% from 2008-2010. So things have not changed much with long-term capital gains except in lower taxes brackets, but it is good to know this information when trying to understand your investments.
