Taxes owed on capital gains
Do I pay the total percentage on capital gains, or is it calculated like income where it is staged. For example, if I make $65Kin income. I'm looking at a tax table for long-term capital tax rates that says the rate is 0% for incomes up to $53,600, and 15% for incomes from $53,600 to $469,050. The question is, do I pay 15% on the whole $65K, or do I pay 0% on the first $53,600 and 15% on the remaining $11,400?
