Commission, Fees and Taxes?

I am wondering how commissions and fees are treated in relation to taxes. From what I can find it sounds like you subtract commissions from your gains.

Say I have $10000 in gains for the year, $1000 in commissions and $1000 in fees. Would my capital gains be $10000 - $1000 = $9000?

I'm US based and a part-time trader with a regular job.
