Assuming

- that is ONLY income

- the sale occurred in 2017

I run quick estimation

- Std. Deduction:$7,900

- Taxable Income$542,100

- Regular Tax:$75,622 (reduced fro long term capital gains)

- Alternative Minimum Tax:$14,971

- Net Investment Tax:$13,300

Total tax liability - $103,894

Let me know if any correction needed to my assumptions.
