REPEAL OF 60% NET CAPITAL GAIN DEDUCTION

The 60% net capital gain deduction can no longer be taken for capital gains recognized during the period beginning of February 9, 1989 and ending on December 31, 1989. However, for capital gains recognized during the period beginning on January 1, 1989 and ending on February 8, 1989, the 60% net capital gain deduction can still be taken. This deduction must be computed on Schedule 3 of Form 394.

For installment sales of capital assets, payments received during the period beginning on January 1, 1989 and ending on February 8, 1989 are eligible for the 60% net capital gain deduction. Payments received during the period beginning on February 9, 1989 and ending on December 31, 1989 are not eligible for the deduction.

Capital gain amounts received during the period beginning on January 1, 1989 and ending on February 8, 1989 by a partnership in which you are a partner are eligible for the 60% net capital gain deduction. Amounts received during the period beginning on February 9, 1989 and ending on December 31, 1989 are not eligible for the deduction. The same rules apply to amounts received by an S Corporation in which you are a shareholder or by a trust or estate in which you are a beneficiary.
