Generally, capital gains and losses occur when you sell something for more or less than you spent to purchase it.
Capital gains occur on any asset sold for a price higher than the purchase price
Capital losses occur on any asset sold for a price less than the purchase price
All taxpayers must report gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets.
California does not have a lower rate for capital gains. All capital gains are taxed as ordinary income.
0 percent: $0 to $39,375. 15 percent: $39,376 to $244,425. 20 percent: $244,426 or more.
