April 15 Has Passed – Now What?

taxplanningWith the 2012 tax filing season behind us, it’s time to start thinking seriously about 2013 tax planning — especially if you’re a higher-income taxpayer, because you might be subject to one or more significant tax increases this year:

  • Taxpayers with FICA wages and self-employment income exceeding $200,000 for singles and $250,000 for joint filers face an additional 0.9% Medicare tax on the excess.
  • Taxpayers with modified adjusted gross income exceeding $200,000 for singles and $250,000 for joint filers may face a new 3.8% Medicare tax on some or all of their net investment income.
  • Taxpayers with taxable income in excess of $400,000 for singles and $450,000 for joint filers face the return of the 39.6% marginal income tax rate — and of the 20% long-term capital gains rate on long-term capital gains and qualified dividends.
