- Individual income tax rates will go up.
- Long-term capital gains rates will rise.
- The gift and estate tax exemption will drop from $5.12 million to $1 million. Estate assets more than the $1 million exemption will be taxed at a maximum 55% rate.
- Taxpayers whose income exceeds a set “threshold amount” will be subject to a 3.8% Medicare surtax on net investment income, effectively raising their marginal income tax rate. An affected taxpayer in the 39.6% bracket—the highest bracket in 2013—will have a 43.4% marginal rate. This will apply to individuals and trusts and estates.
