How Will The Expiration of The Bush Tax Cuts, The Fiscal Cliff, Obamacare & Passing Proposition 30 Affect Your Taxes?


With the uncertainty over Congress’s ability to solve the fiscal cliff issues in a timely manner, many middle to high income families and business owners may wait too long and not have time to prepare financially for the tax consequences now in place retroactively in 2012 from Prop 30 passing as well as what will come in 2013 on the federal level.


On Monday, December 10th at 9:00 am PT (register at we will be hosting a live conference call and explain the pending tax increases and their potential impact they can have and how to prepare for them. 


Here are some examples of what is coming:


Federally not only are the Bush Administration tax cuts set to expire, but a new 3.8 percent surtax on investment income and a possible reinstated claw-back of itemized deductions could raise the tax rate on ordinary income to as high as an effective 44.6 percent for some taxpayers.


Similarly, the tax rate on long-term capital gains could increase from 15 percent to 20 percent and the rate on qualified dividends from 15 percent to an effective 44.6 percent.


Finally, if Congress doesn’t take action, the federal estate tax rate will increase from 35 percent to 55 percent and the exclusion amount will drop from $5,120,000 to $1,000,000.


To learn what these changes mean and strategies to prepare yourself & your business for them, both individuals and business owners are invited to listen in to the Free Conference Call on Monday, December 10th at 9:00 am PT (register beforehand at
