Recent document on cap gains mentioned "your tax rate"
or "tax bracket"
Does this refer to the true real rate (on your total taxable income), the rate
on most of your income (left hand amount in IRS
tax rate tables) or the marginal rate (the rate only on that above the income amount in the left hand amount
in the IRS tax rate tables)?
