In reading Roy's 1/5/01 column on purchase date qualification for five year holding capital gains rate reduction he does NOT repeat the caveat that stock must be acquired after 1/1/01 to qualify for 8% rate if taxpayer is in 15% tax bracket. Does this mean that if I gift stock I purchased in 1990 to grandchild in 15% bracket grandchild's tax on gain at time of sale will be at the 8% rate rather than 10%?
Yes, it does.
Maybe not. It depends on how old the grandchild is. If under age 14, your grandchild will be subject to "kiddie tax" rules. Income above a low threshold (including capital gains) is taxed at the parent's rate.Ira
