Can someone tell me or refer me to what the capital gains taxes for stocks are? Thanks, Rich

There aren't different capital gains rates for stocks and for other things. The key point that determines different rates is the holding period (short term capital gains for stocks held one year or less vs. long term capital gains for stocks held for at least a year and a day). The next thing that matters is your own tax bracket. Read up on taxes on capital gains in general (the short term and the long term; there's nothing special about stocks).
