I am currently in the 28% bracket but will return to school next year and my only income then will be from dividends and whatever capital gains I realize. I know that short term gains are taxed as ordinary income. If I realize a short term capital gain next year of $50K, does that amount count towards the calculation of my tax bracket? Or will I still be in the 15% bracket because I won't have any salaried income from a job. Thanks.
