If the income on Tbills is taxed as interest, not dividends, then it does not qualify for the 15% rate (unless one is in the 15% bracket). Is this correct?

So is it better to NOT purchase individual Tbills, and use a bond fund instead, because this is taxed at the dividend rate of 15% ?? We are in the 28% tax bracket, and in the 9.3% state income tax bracket. I had been moving into Tbills because they are exempt from state tax. However, now I am wondering if this is a big mistake.
