High income taxpayers now face a myriad of tax increases ranging from higher marginal tax rates, an expanded tax base, and the phase-out of many tax benefits, including a reduction in itemized deductions, a phase-out of personal and dependency exemptions, and a phase-out of tax incentives for post-secondary education expenses and other incentives related to dependent children. High income taxpayers are also faced with higher tax rates on long term capital gain/dividend income. Also, the phase-out of the AMT exemption will also require many high income taxpayers to pay an Alternative Minimum Tax. There are several tax planning opportunities, including the choice of business entity decision and certain income splitting strategies among family members that can be used to minimize the total family tax burden. The new taxes imposed by the Affordable Care Act, the additional .9% tax on earned income, and the 3.8% tax on net investment income require careful tax planning to minimize or even eliminate the burden from these new taxes.
