Greetings, JDOyster, and welcome. You asked:<<I thought that short-term capital gains were taxed at your marginal rate (which, for many of us, will be below the top rate of 39.6%)..>>The 39.6% short-term capital gains rate is for those in the highest marginal tax bracket only. If you're in a lower marginal bracket, that will be the most you must pay.<<And isn't there a 10% capital gain rate for people in the 15% tax bracket?>>Yes, there is. In fact, if they have held the asset for longer than five years and sell it on or after January 1 of next year, the rate drops to 8%.Regards..Pixy
