Ronnie owns 600 shares of a stock mutual fund. This year he received dividend distributions of 60 stock mutual fund shares (\$61 per​ share) and​ long-term capital gain distributions of 38 stock mutual fund shares​ (also \$61 per​ share). What are the tax consequences of​ Ronnie's stock mutual fund ownership if he is in a 28​% marginal tax​ bracket?

So total tax that is levied on the total gain from MF is \$896.7

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When you buy some stock or mutual fund and you hold it for more than a year, then any gain you receive on the investment is called long term capital gain, tax is levied on this gain.

A person who is in 28% tax bracket, will be levied 15 % tax on the gain

So tax = (Long term capital gain + Dividend) * .15

= [(60 + 38) * 61] * 15

= 896.7
