A transaction is taxable if the applicable tax law requires gain or loss to be recognized.
Generally, if you dispose of an asset in exchange for another asset or cash, any gain or loss is taxable.
There are some exceptions in the tax law that can apply to prevent the recognition of gain or loss in certain instances. Please consult your own professional advisors before making any tax, legal or accounting decisions.
