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%.

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.
