i am not too familiar with the tax code. i was just curious about a couple things.

1. how does taxation on equity investments apply to college students, who more than likely wont make over $5,000 in a year b/c of full time school?

2. what tax bracket would that put the student in?

3. how is taxation applied to equity investments if there is a net loss on investment, if applicable at all?


How are limited parnerships taxed with respect to revenue? berkshire hathaway for example. in its early stages, it began with 5 or 6 partners and the money or assets earned were from equity investment.

and aren't equity investment profits earned by a corporation taxed at a lower rate?
