If your income-stream is taxed at ordinary-income rates (currently, 25%)Not sure what ordinary income rates you're talking about, but there hasn't been a 25% bracket since 2017, and under current law, won't be a 25% bracket again until 2026. The current brackets are:0%10%12%22%32%35%37%So even if all of your divys are taxed at ordinary income rates, you'd have to have taxable income well over $200k (single, HOH) or $400k (MFJ) to have an effective 25% rate. That said, many preferreds pay qualified dividends, which have their own tax brackets, the same as capital gains:0%15%18.8%23.8%So if your income was mostly qualified divys, you wouldn't even get to a 25% marginal rate, much less a 25% effective rate.Sorry, your analysis is unrealistic.AJ
