NYS does not have a different rate for capital gains income for 2013. It is taxed at the recipient's standard NYS rate, which can be as high as 9.62%.

Customer:

Do you have a link to the chart table

Above response looks good. He forgot about the fed rates as well. Basically short term gains are taxed at the same rate as your ordinary income.. If the gain is large it can actually kick you into another tax bracket. But don't forget tax brackets are marginal.. So you only pay the higher rate on the amount above your old bracket..
