Capital gains can be a powerful tool for capital gains tax purposes.
If you are a Texas resident, you can deduct capital gains in the year of the tax year you paid it, even if you did not take the deduction for the tax years immediately preceding the year you received the tax refund.
You can also deduct capital losses for capital gain taxes that were due in the calendar year in which you paid them.
For example, if you are taxed for a capital loss of $200 in the fourth quarter of 2017, you could deduct the amount of the capital loss from your tax return.
Capital losses are subject to a 10% tax rate.
Capital gains tax rates vary by state.
Here are the state capital gains rates, with the corresponding tax brackets for individuals, couples, and heads of household.
If your state has a different capital gains rate than the ones we are covering, please see the section titled “Taxes and Rates.”

Capital Losses Tax Rate The capital losses tax rate is calculated by subtracting the amount you would have received from your business if you were a self-employed person and adding it to the amount your business would have been taxed at under the federal capital gains laws if you held the business at the time you were taxed.
If a business is held at the same time as you do, the loss is taxed at the business’s adjusted gross loss rate.
You must be at least 62 years old to claim the capital losses deduction.
Capital losses Taxation Texas Capital losses from your losses are taxed at a tax rate of 10% and are subject in Texas to the capital gains income tax rate, which applies to all taxable income.
You cannot deduct capital loss losses from income that is not taxable.
Capital gain Tax Rate In Texas, your capital gains, loss, and tax-free gains are taxed according to the tax brackets.
You do not have to be a resident of Texas to take advantage of the 10%, 25%, or 50% capital gain tax rates.
If Texas is not your state, you may be able to claim an “alternate rate” on your return.
The alternative rate is an additional rate that is applied to the value of the deduction, even though it does not have a taxable basis.
To claim an alternative rate, you must file Form W-2 with the IRS.
If the alternative rate applies to your capital gain or loss, you cannot claim the deduction if the amount claimed is less than or equal to the taxable basis for the business.
The IRS also may withhold the full amount of any tax liability from your return, even when the return was filed before you received a capital gains deduction.
The 10% rate applies only to income subject to the federal income tax, not to qualified business expense deductions.
Tax-free Gain Tax Rate If you receive a capital interest or dividend payment, you are subject only to the ordinary income tax.
You are not subject to capital gains or loss taxes for any income from investments, dividends, interest, or other distributions.
The tax-less gain is taxed as ordinary income, not capital gains.
This tax-based rate is subject to change by the IRS in future years.
