Assuming he has no other income, he would have a standard deduction of $950. The first $950 of taxable income would be taxed at his LTCG rate, which is 0%. The remaining $4400 of LTCG would be taxed at your LTCG rate: 0%, 15%, or a blend of the two depending on the composition and amount of your taxable income.

Thanks for the reply. Would the tax be figured/filed under form 8615 or the Schedule D Worksheet?
