capital gains. it is looked upon as an investment.It is income. same as your job. * First off, capital gains treatment is not afforded to income from your job. It is not the same. Secondly, not all cell tower lease buyouts are afforded capital gains treatment or 1031 like kind exchange treatment. It depends upon the lenght of the buyout and whether the lessor (landowner) has reserved any income rights for themselves. The key issue is the element of control which the owner maintains. Most of the companies offering these buyouts have opinion letters from big 4 accounting firms which you can share with your CPA. But in the end, your accountant has to sign off on the sale.

It depends on the terms of the lease. The lease may terminate or the lease may "run with the land."

The rental rate for a cell tower lease varies depending on several factors. For example, a renewal or extension of an existing lease, the rental rate will probably be higher than a new lease.

Sure. Presuming someone wants it and the zoning allows it. I mean, how the heck else do you think the tens of thousands of them, frequently with several different services on them, have been placed?

Cell phone can't be protected from jamming. The only thing you can do is to make the connection between cell phone and cell phone tower as strong as you can by keeping cell phone fully charged and as close to the cell tower.

That's a matter of negotiation between the land owner and the company erecting the cell tower.
