Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a tax adviser with over 15 years of experience.

Unfortunately, yes. Gross income includes both earned income (salary, wages, tips, commissions, bonuses, unemployment benefits and sick pay) and unearned income dividends, interest, and the profit you make when you sell an investment -- your capital gain).
