2019 was not a good year and my taxable income(1040 line 11b) is $3600.
I had dividend and LTCG income so Schedule D sends me to this worksheet: Qualified Dividends and Capital Gains (page 33, 1040 instructions).
I had expected to pay no federal tax, but am getting hung up on question #24 on this Worksheet.
24. Figure the tax on the amount on line 7. If the amount on line 7 is less than $100,000, use the Tax Table to figure the tax. If the amount on line 7 is $100,000 or more, use the Tax Computation Worksheet
In my case, line 7 is $0. But if I follow these directions to Tax Table and use $3600 (line 11b), I do have a tax to pay, which flows to end of this form.
Have I interpreted line #24 correctly?
