to summarize what other have told you, if it is a Long Term Capital Gain it will be taxed at 5% if you are in the 15% tax bracket and stay there even with the gross LTCG. There is no such thing as 'QUALIFIED" regarding tax free bonds for their interest, their short term gains, nor their LTCGs. There is nothing to break the 5% rate for a LTCG from a tax exempt bond or a TF bond fund except for it being Shrot term because it was held for less than a year, or it wasn't a LTCG, or you are in a higher tax bracket than 15%.
