What Is Capital Gain?

Neeta Shah

 'Capital Gain' 

An increase in the value of a capital asset (investment or real 

estate) that gives it a higher worth than the purchase price. 

The gain is not realized until the asset is sold. A capital gain 

may be short term (one year or less) or long term (more than 

one year) and must be claimed on income taxes. A capital 

loss is incurred when there is a decrease in the capital asset 

value compared to an asset's purchase price.

Profit that results when the price of a security held by a 

mutual fund rises above its purchase price and the security is 

sold (realized gain). If the security continues to be held, the 

gain is unrealized. A capital loss would occur when the 

opposite takes place.
