In the event that you had the equivalent $10,000 benefit, however, you held the advantage for over one year, the assessment rate is lower.

In the event that you are in the 25 percent charge section, for instance, your expense rate on long haul capital additions is just 15 percent. You just owe $1,500 in capital increases charge.
