And at this moment I want to tell you to try to hold your stock for at least one year. The reason I say this is because in there, we have what’s called the capital gains tax rates. And guess what? Part of that is a 0% tax bracket. That’s right. So if you’re single, including the capital gains that you might have had, that would be $40,000 you can earn. Join $80,000 Head of Household $54,000. So if you actually add your income plus your capital gains and its long term, you can pay zero tax. The other rates are 15%, 20% plus 3.8%. So you may have up to 24% tax as well.
