Capital Gains Tax Calculator

Continue reading
Capital gains tax is calculated by taking the selling price of your property and subtracting the price you originally purchased it for and associated expenses (like legal fees, stamp duty, agent fees etc.).  The remaining amount is your capital gain.
Below you will find our capital gains tax calculator, which will give you the capital gains base you can use to find out how much tax you will need to pay upon sale of your property. You can then input your effective tax rate to find an estimate of the amount of tax you will need to pay.
You will need to estimate the sale price of the property. A local real estate agent will be able to provide you with a realistic estimate of your property’s value based on recent sales of comparable properties in the area. See the top performing agents in your area and request a valuation estimate.
