9a is taxable as long-term gain and increases your tax basis. 19A is not taxable income but reduces your tax basis. why 20%? more income can have an affect on other items. you would need to review the cap gain and qualified dividend worksheet to see how the gain is taxed.
To provide a little more clarification, the capital gains rate can be 0%, 15% or 20%.
Your rate depends on your taxable income and filing status.
As was noted by @Mike9241 , you can see this determination by reviewing your capital gain tax worksheet within TT.
Also keep in mind the date of replies, as tax law changes.
