hello, everyone i'm new here. i need some advice. i am a college student and have made a profit of $75,000 in the stock market buying (INSP) it is a great company if you are interested. well back to my question, i have no working income because i am going to school fulltime and was wondering if anyone knows how i will be taxed if i sell my stock now as opposed to when i start to have a working income. does the fact that i have no income entitle me to not have to pay capital gains or will i just be considered low income and be grouped into the 15% bracket? thanks for your help.
