Capital gains tax is imposed on gains realized from the sale of capital assets such as a home, investments, and business interests. Under the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 (2003 Tax Act) and the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act of 2005 (2005 Tax Act), certain dividends are also taxed at capital gains tax rates. Generally, capital gains tax rates are lower than the rates applied to ordinary income.
