Let's say, for simplicity's sake, that your yearly salary is $1000 and thus you are in a low tax bracket (call it 15%, even if it's zero).Now let's say you incur $40,000 in short-term capital gains. Is that $40,000 taxed at 15%? Or is it first added to your regular income, for a total of $41,000, and then your tax bracket is computed (which would result in, say, a 28% bracket instead of 15%)?Thanks for any leads. I'm guessing I know the answer but the Fool just posted an article and said that they don't know the answer to this question- although that was for the new cap-gains tax rules coming into effect in 2001, not the current ones.
