Stock shares sold from a regular brokerage account will be subjected to capital gains tax. If the assets were owned for less than a year, this is short-term capital gains. For assets that you have had longer, you will need to pay long-term capital gains on the profit. Short-term capital gains are typically the same tax rate as your current tax bracket, while long-term capital gains can be anywhere from 0% to 20% depending on your taxable income and filing status.
