Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Real



The U.S. Senate passed the extension of the “American Taxpayers Relief Act of 2012” on a bipartisan 89-9 vote late January 1st, 2013 extending  the tax rates for households earning less than $450,000  and $400,000 for individual filers.   According to NAR Households earning above these limits tax rate would slip back to where they were in 2003.  The Taxpayers in the highest bracket would pay 39.6% up from 35% in 2012.  According to NAR The tax rate on Capital gains will also stay the same.  Read the full article from NAR. Happy "2013".

 Remember to always consult with your CPA, Attorney or financial professional for advice, as the current law but, it appears that the current law will continue unchanged and that is good news.
