Obama details capital gains, dividend tax plans
8:41 PM, August 14, 2008

Sen. Barack Obama's campaign on Thursday spelled out the details of the Democratic presidential candidate’s tax plan on his website and in an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal.

I just wanted to note the basic proposals for capital gains and dividend tax rates here:

Families with incomes below $250,000 would pay current capital gains rates (a maximum tax of 15% on gains on assets held more than one year). Those earning more than $250,000 would face an increase -- a top rate of 20%.

The top dividend tax rate would remain the current 15% for those earning less than $250,000, but would rise to 20% for those earning above that threshold.

For single people, the tax increases above would apply to those earning more than $200,000

Specifically, Obama wants to raise taxes on income, capital gains, and dividends for families earning more than $250,000 annually.(NRO Financial web page)
