Box  1b entries on a 1099-DIV may be taxed as 0% (though it can be taxed at higher % as your income changes), and the table isn't used for that part your taxable income, even if it is included in the total figure.

A special calculation is used for those.  IF you save your tax return with "all forms and worksheets" and look at the PDF, there is a "Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet " where the tax is calculated and only uses the tables for part of your income.
