It's not just 15%, check with an accountant or tax lawyer to know.

 - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Tax_compliance#Are_my_bitcoins_taxed_as_income.2C_or_as_capital_gains.3F

But is bitcoin a currency, like the Euro and Yen?  Or is it a commodity like gold or oil.   It probably isnt' a security.

I'm in Canada actually... up here it is 50% of what you earned times your tax rate

For example...

$100 x 50% x 43% = $21.5(21.5%)

In the Netherlands we don't pay capital gains tax or dividend tax but rather pay 30% on a hypothetical yield of 4% on all funds (currency, stock etc), minus a21k Euro threshold. Before 2000 we used to pay 60% though ......
