How Much To Pay in Taxes for Selling a Website? osoamor msg:3325675 10:42 pm on Apr 29, 2007 (gmt 0) Any idea how much one would owe uncle sam once you collect funds for a website sale? Is is a fixed percentage rate?

If the sale qualifies for capital gains treatment, it is a fixed percentage depending on your tax bracket. The percentage would not exceed 15% of the gain. Howerver, if you fall into the alternative minimum tax trap - the effective percentage can be as high as 25%. LifeinAsia msg:3326389 4:30 pm on Apr 30, 2007 (gmt 0)
How the sale will be taxed depends on the tax treatment of the site up to this point. Consult with your tax advisor for how he/she has been treating the related revenue/expenses up to this point.
