<<<In your Tax Schedule D Question and Answer session here on Motley Fool, you say that there are 3 rate groups, i.e., 28%, 25%, and 20%.
I thought that short term capital gains were subject to a 39.6% rate, which was not mentioned. This would mean that there are 4 rates.
Please respond. Thanks.


You're right that ST capital gains can be taxable up to 39.6% - that's based on your ordinary income tax rate. Surf on over to for an in-depth explaination on the capital gains rates. Travzila
