Is this correct?
Yep. Pretty much.
Keep in mind the 0% rate applies only to the extent that the capital gain would have been taxed at 15% or less. Once the capital gain pushes you through the 15% bracket into the 25% bracket, the amount in the 25% bracket is taxed at 15%.
So your $1 million long term capital gain is not going to be tax free just because you don't have any other income. (But some part of it would be!)
