Yes it is taxed at the Capital Gains Rate
by: CPA Micheal

Yes it is taxed at the capital gains rate. I just went through an audit with the irs for a client and they accept it at the capital gains rate as long as the easement is for longer than 30 years. Thank you.

Tower tax advice.
by: Kevin at Airwave

That is good question but one that you will need to speak about with your CPA. I have heard opinions regarding both sides of the story and unless you are selling the value for a period greater than 30 or 40 years I think it is a grey area that has not been stood up to an IRS challenge.
