You will have capital gains on $28,500
There will be no tax if you are in the 10-15% tax bracket. If you are above the 15% tax bracket you will pay 15% of this amount, and if you make over $400K per year you will pay 20% of the amount
You will report this on schedule D of your tax return
But he will not see any real gains, but only the $450 per month. Will he have to report this gain right away, and all at once?
When you say no tax, do you mean no capital gains at all? He will clearly be in lower bracket.
Yes, if you are in the 10-15% tax bracket, the long term capital gains rate is 0
