Capital Gains Tax Can Impact Your Divorce

Capital gains tax is an important factor in evaluating property distribution because it is taxed at a lesser rate. Many people, and many inexperienced attorneys as well, do not realize that taxes are treated differently in different contexts. When going through a divorce, it is important to understand the tax implications of your assets and any support payments in order to balance the impact of capital gains tax against any potential income tax you may be required to pay to the New York Department of Taxation or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) at the state or federal level.

For example, if you take on a large asset in your divorce settlement, such as a home, capital gains is a major factor in how much you are going to gain.
