Will Build Back Better Mean Higher Capital Gains? Will Section 1202 change?

The Build Back Better Act will likely mean higher capital gains for taxpayers, if it passes. According to a document that has been circulated, the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee is looking for ways to raise $2.9 trillion in revenue over 10 years. Currently, that plan includes:

  1. Increased corporate taxes 
  2. Higher income taxes for wealthy taxpayers 
  3. Higher capital gains and estate taxes

If the act passes (and keep in mind it is facing a large pushback from Republicans) it will mean higher capital gains taxes, and will have other impacts for some individual taxpayers, including higher income taxes and estate taxes?

CapGains Inc. is following this legislation closely and is forming a coalition to stay abreast of developments – keep up to date here.

About QSBS Expert

QSBS Expert was founded by a group of entrepreneurs, investors, accountants and lawyers who came together when trying to navigate a QSBS situation of their own. We quickly realized that the regulations left a lot of open questions and the publicly available information was confusing to sift through…so we thought that others may also benefit from having a “go to” resource for all things QSBS.
