Hi, my name is Mark. I am a CPA, I would be happy to help you with this question. The buyout of your lease would be considered the sale of a contract. As a result, if held longer than 1 year this would receive long term capital gain treatment. For most people the long-term rates are 15%. If you are in the 10 or 15% bracket the tax rate is zero. If you are in the highest tax brackets the capital gain rate goes to 20%.
