    In the US that would be a capital gains tax where under current (non Obama) law you would pay between 10 and 28% of the gain.

    This would be reported on a sch D and attached to your form 1040.

    yes, you are supposed to pay capital gains tax (if over 1 year then it is long terms capital gain, if your buy/sell is under 1 year then short terms capital gains)

    you can try to get away with not paying tax, you wont get caught unless they specifically audit you, not sure if $2k would get you in any real trouble.
