Reduce Capital Gains Tax Treatment

Understanding Tax Implications

If you are selling a business, it’s important to understand the tax implications. How you structure the transaction can determine whether the proceeds are eligible for favorable tax treatment as a long-term capital gains.

Asset Sales And Stock Sales

There are two types of business sales:

  • Stock sales: If you are selling a capital asset, the IRS treats the proceeds as a short-term or long-term capital gain. Long-term gains offer a lower effective tax rate.
  • Asset sales: If you are selling an asset used in day-to-day operations, the IRS taxes the proceeds at a higher rate as ordinary income.

Whether a sale is treated as a stock sale or an asset sale depends on how the asset is classified and how you structure the sale. Our integrated approach to mergers and acquisitions enables us to help you obtain the maximum allowable tax advantages and reduce capital gains while protecting your from IRS tax audits resulting from misclassified assets.
