Hi and welcome to our site!
That transaction will result in long term capital gain - assuming you held the property more than a year.
While the actual rate will depends on your total income - for most taxpayers - long term capital gain tax rate is 15%.

Louisiana state income tax is extra - again the rate is based on total taxable income - generally it woudl be 4% on taxable income between $12500 and $50,000.
So - as a rough estimation - I would assume 15% for federal - $300 and 4% for state $80 on capital gain $2000.
