Capital Gains and Losses
Capital Gains Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Advisor for Answers ASAP
Hi Tom. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Installment sale, as long as properly arranged and documented, is an option to spread capital gains reporting over several years. Each payment will be broken down into gain, principle and interest. Each year you will report partial capital gains (Schedule D) and interest (Schedule B).
Just be careful about the depreciation. Under the depreciation recapture rules the depreciation is added back to your income in the year of the sale. Check with your tax adviser how much of the capital gains would be treated as depreciation and not as capital gains.
