The weather roared in like a lion this year. As business owners, we all hope the potential increase in capital gains taxes doesn’t roar in for a few years to come, especially if there are plans to sell your business. Pressure to increase the capital gains rate will come to bear as Covid-19 bailout funds currently total $5.7 trillion dollars and could increase. The current capital gains rate of 20% could be increased to a whopping 37% plus a 3.8% surcharge. Most experts believe major tax changes will happen in 2022 or 2023 as politicians focus on stimulus in 2021.
With this in mind, many business owners are accelerating their plans to sell in order to take advantage of the current capital gains rate. Is it time to sell your business? Call us today at (972) 219-6961.
Not ready to sell but would like to prepare for the future? Capital gains taxes are applied to the difference between the sale price and the value of an Owner’s Investment. This is called the basis. Contact your tax advisor about establishing your current fair market basis. Your advisor may suggest a USPAP valuation to set the basis for a future sale. Your advisor will give you all the pros and cons for your current situation.
