I don't see how I was wrong -- read my post over again. I don't dispute that taxes are due on the gains, but I don't see how a similar percentage of taxes due magically makes the gains the same. because the taxes due are shown as a percentage of the TOTAL SALE PROCEEDS. The actual dollar amount is irrelevent. If I buy stock, then I sell the stock and pay taxes on my gains but have those taxes expressed as a percent of the TOTAL sale and in two instances, that percent is similar, it follows that the gains were similar. In this case either 90% or 95% of the total is a gain. Those two figures are similar in anyone's book. Well almost anyone.Teri....math major
