Ok, one last time. The capital gains are counted as part of my income, but are taxed at a separate rate (15% in this case). The fact that it's still counted as part of my income is important because it may disqualify me from contributing to a Roth IRA or other benefits that are have specific income limits.

Thanks very much Lorenzo and Phil!
