“For example, suppose you have \$80,000 of pension income and \$400,000 of qualified dividend income. The amount of tax you’ll pay on the \$80,000 of pension income will be the same as if you had zero pension income. Tax on the dividend income is extra, but doesn’t change what you pay on the pension income.”

Sorry, I don’t understand this example.
