Capital Gains Exemption

Definition of Capital Gains Exemption

Capital gains exemption is the tax break that a government offers on profits earned by selling assets. Generally, an investor must pay a tax on the short-term capital gains or long-term capital gains earned.

But in certain cases, the government allows investors to offset taxes. For example, if an investor sells property and reinvests the entire amount back again into another property, they can avail of capital gains exemption.
