Hi,

Any help here would be appreciated.

Tax year: 2011

If the LT cap gains tax rate is zero for 15% tax bracket, why does my 2011 Turbo Tax show the LT cap gains I had on line 13 if my TAXABLE INCOME was well below the $69,000 at the top of the 15% tax rate bracket for married filing jointly?

I usually trust Turbo Tax and somehow doubt this is their mistake. What mistake might I be making?

Thanks,
RB
