Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy help you.
It depends on holding period (long term or short term) and your tax bracket. Short term gains are taxed as ordinary income, same tax rate as your other income based on your tax bracket.
Long term capital gains get special treatment.
In 10 - 15% tax bracket - 0% capital gains rate
in 25 - 35% tax bracket - 15% capital gains rate
in 39,6% tax bracket - 20% capital gains rate
