What follows isn't tax advice and may not be correct...
My understanding, based upon the last couple of years of selling off my collection, is that you deduct the costs associated with the gains/losses and then pay the 28% on that total gain. You get to deduct things like auction fees, listing fees, paypal fees, postage, yada, yada, yada. It is a pain to go back and determine the what you bought books for and the cost associated with the sale of them, but it has to be done.
You can offset it with tax strategies but you'd need to talk to a tax professional about then and what is right for you.

It is also structured in a way to help ensure the wealthy stay wealthy and the poor stay mostly poor.

Thank you for your response. I plan to have a conversation with accountant before selling anything this coming year.
