Future Legislation-Capital Gains
The Obama administration has proposed to increase the income and capital gains tax rates on single individuals with income of more than $200,000 and married couples with income exceeding $250,000. For S corporation shareholders, partners and sole proprietors who recognize income on their individual returns, following the traditional year-end planning maxim of deferring income into the next year may not be a positive tax strategy. Deferring too much income into 2011 could result in income taxed at a higher rate. These and other individual tax planning issues are discussed in, 2010 Year-End Tax Planning for Individuals.
