What are capital gains?

Category: Business & Economy

Answer:

Capital gains are defined as profits derived from the sale of certain assets. So if an asset is purchased and then sold at a higher price, it is considered a capital gain. Capital gains are often taxed at a lower rate depending on the type of asset and the timing of the sale.
