Section 1245

(redirected from 26 U.S.C. §1245)

Section 1245

A section of the IRS tax code indicating that any depreciable property that is sold for more than the depreciated value qualifies for capital gains taxation rather than income taxation. Equally importantly, Section 1245 qualifies this type of property for favorable capital gains treatment: sellers pay less in capital gain tax than they otherwise would on this property. Section 1245 applies to real, personal, and intangible property so long as it can be depreciated and amortized. See also: Accounting.
