Understand the difference in capital gains tax applicable to companies and individuals. The rates for individuals are less than the charges on companies.
Ascertain the difference between long-term capital gains and short-term capital gains as well as a short-term loss and long-term loss. A short-term gain or short-term loss is defined as a gain or loss on the sale of an asset with a holding period of a year or less. A long-term gain or loss on the other hand is the gain or loss arising out of a sale with a holding period of over a year. Note that a short-term gain invites lesser tax rates while a long-term gain invites higher tax rates depending upon the tax bracket you fall under.
