<<How is the holding period calculated for a new share resulting from a stock split? Does it have to age 18 months to qualify as a long term capital gain/loss?>>The tax law quite sensibly assigns to the new shares the same holding period as the old shares.BTW, the holding period for long-term capital gain or loss is still 12 months (actually 12 months plus one day). The difference under the new law is that you may qualify for a better rate if you hold for more than 18 months.KAT in Chicagoland
