I have a question about income taxes that I hope you may be able to help me with: If a person's income is so low that he does not have to file an income tax return, but he has earned a couple thousand dollars on the sale of stocks, would he have to file a return anyway since stock profits are capital gains? In other words, does a person always have to pay capital gains tax when he sells stocks at a profit, or are stock-sale profits looked upon as just another form of income when the person's total annual income (including stock profits) is less than the minimum amount required to file a tax return? I would very much appreciate it if you can answer this for me. Thank you. Scott
