Posted by Andy Gustafson on Thu, May 30, 2013

Capital Gains Tax Deferral

Posted by Andy Gustafson on Mon, Sep 10, 2012

Deploying a capital gains tax deferral strategy merits additional attention given the pending federal changes effective January 1, 2013. Taxes on ordinary income will increase from 35 percent to 43.4 percent for earners in the highest bracket.  The long-term capital gain rate will increase from 15 percent to 23.8 percent including the new 3.8 percent “health care tax” on interest, dividends and other passive income earned by individuals with income more than $200,000 per year, or $250,000 for married taxpayers. The estate and gift tax will also change. The current estate and gift tax exclusion is $5 million with any excess subject to a federal estate tax of 35 percent. Effective in 2013, the exclusion returns to $1 million with the maximum estate and gift tax increasing to 55 percent.
