Easiest question of the day.

The threshold for paying 0% on long term cap gains is $77,400 for married filers. But I think the ordinary income is added to the LTCG for the purpose of determining the rate.

For example, suppose I had $50,000 in ordinary taxable income plus $100,000 LTCG.

Do I have $50,000 taxed as ordinary income (12% marginal rate), $27,400 at 0% and $72,600 at 15% ?
