"A portion of the long term gain is then added to your income before your normal income tax rate is applied."

Is that right? This is basically what I was asking about....are there any things like this that I just wasn't seeing.

Though I didn't have any long term capital gains last year, I went through the form just to test it out. I don't remember seeing anything like looked like all of the long term gains dropped out before the value was added back into your normal income. But if I missed something like this I definitly want to know about it now rather that later. Thanks
