SOI Tax Stats - Sales of Capital Assets Reported on Individual Tax Returns

Return to Tax Stats home page

The Sales of Capital Assets bulletin article and related statistical tables provide detailed information about trends in the capital gains and losses of individuals. Statistics are periodically collected about types of transactions producing these gains and losses, the month of the year in which a transaction occurs, the length of time assets are held before sale, and the size of the sellers' adjusted gross income.


Statistical Tables

All tables are available as Microsoft Excel® files. A free Excel viewer is available for download, if necessary.
