Is there any capital gains tax advantage in keeping a rental

This answer was rated:

Is there any capital gains tax advantage in keeping a rental property for 3 years instead of 2 years before selling it?

Robin D. :

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 15 years of experience.
2 years or 3 years the property would be long term which gives a lower rate on Capital Gains. Of course the extra year of depreciation will increase the recapture amount.

Robin D. :

I can not think of any advantage for capital gains though when talking about rental property.
