Unrealized Appreciation

Unrealized Appreciation

An increase in the value of a property or other asset that the owner does not receive because the asset has not been sold. Unrealized appreciation occurs most commonly in real estate and securities because most other assets depreciate. Unrealized appreciation is not taxed until the asset is sold. However, unrealized appreciation may be used to calculate property taxes. See also: Net unrealized appreciation.

A bit later, however, in response to another question from Mann, Hull suggested a very different rule: "[I]f a man bought some property, it may have been 10 years ago, for $10,000 and sells it for $20,000 now, he would return [i.e., report as income] the average annual increase for one year, which would be $1,000, as a part of his annual profits for this year." (17) In contrast with Hull's earlier reply to Rogers, this suggested that there was no mark-to-market taxation of unrealized appreciation, although it is possible that Hull was thinking of real estate ("property") in his response to Mann, and that he envisioned a mark-to-market regime for marketable securities coexisting with realization-based taxation of real estate investment gains.
