Hi. Great Question.
Yes - 0% long-term capital gains rate (since you have held the land for over a year) for taxpayers in the 10% and 15% tax bracket - which meets the $74k/year.
You would have to pay long-term capital gains, if you were over the 15% bracket. The $8k is probably if you were over the 15% bracket.
If you have any questions, let me know. If not, a positive rating is very much appreciated. Thank you.
