This is a special rate for long-term capital gain, not a special rate for ordinary income. We know this two ways:

  1. The name says this gain is “unrecaptured,” meaning we haven’t applied ordinary rates to the gain.
  2. We’re allowed to use capital losses (including “normal” long-term capital losses) to offset this gain without regard to the $3,000 capital loss limitation (see Schedule D).
