I researched and it looks like I would not need to pay any Fed tax on it. I then researched VA and I didn't find anything. Would I need to pay VA tax on the Cap Gains if my income is zero?
No tax due to IRS as your taxable income is zero as the amount for your standard deduction/personal exemption is larger than your capital gain of $3K.For VA,I do not think so ;UNLESS your VAGI is over $11,950,you do not need to file your VA return either. I believe you do not even need to pay estimated tax on your capital gain of $3K with VA.However, I guess you need to contact the Dept of Rev of VA for more accurate info on your issue; state tax law varied from state to state; you may call for sevcie at 804)367-8031
