What kind of long term capital gains taxes can I expect on a sale of stock purchased for about $1380, with a net gain of about $4180. 15% tax bracket (thank goodness for being poor! lol!)
I'm gonna dive in here possibly over my head, but I believe it would simply be 15% of your profit, which is $627. Correct me if I'm wrong, but everyone pays 15 percent on long term capital gains (in your example you would have had to own the stock for over 1 year), no?
