The 0% tax rate on qualified dividends and long term capital gains that are in the 10% or 15% tax bracket has not changed.

For those of us with a large % of household income from qualified dividends, this was good news.

What has changed is that the inflation rate used to adjust the brackets will now be the 'chained' CPI, which moves up at a slower rate than the currently used 'fixed weight' CPI. That will make it harder to stay in the 2 lower brackets as time passes.
