Subject:  5% Capital Gains Tax Rate Date:  12/26/2004  2:15 AM

I will be selling about $100,000 of highly appreciated stock (the tax basis is $20,000) in 2005, and I would like to take advantage of the 5% capital gains tax rate to the fullest extent possible. What are the criteria I must meet? Can the full $80,000 of capital gains be subject to the 5% CG rate?
Thanks you.
