What is investment income?

Investment income is any interest, rents, royalties, dividends, capital gains, and other income derived from an asset. Investment income could come from sources including stocks, bonds, options, property sales, savings account interest, or the sale of valuables or collectibles.

Gross investment income is the total amount of money you collect on your investments before fees and taxes. Net investment income would be what remained after you subtracted what you paid to buy, hold, and sell your investments, investment fees, and capital gains taxes.
