i i 12B Wedlesday, Sept. 8, 2010 Bulletin Progressiv I TAXES, f, om page 11 B Capital i ;ains rates - Also as part oft] ze Bush era cuts, the capital gains rates were substantia]ly reduced, but will return to tl heir old levels of 10 percent for anyone in the 15 percent re ular tax bracket and 20 per(ent for all others. That is up &apos;om zero percent and 15 perdent in 2010. This will impac investors, busi- ness owners and homeowners they ell a capital asset. when Earned income credit - This refundable credit currently has four categories of low-in- come worklng taxpayers, with the credit increasing as the number of Children increase, up to threer more. In 2011, the "three Or more children" category will go away, and tax- payers with three or more chil- dren will have to use the two or more category. This can re- duce the credit for low-income taxpayers with three or more children by up to $600. Child credit - The tax law provides a tax credit for each of a taxpayer's children under the age of 17. This credit will drop to $500 (was $1,000 in 2010) per child. Since this credit phases out for higher- income taxpayers, it will gen- erally impact lower-income taxpayers. Standard deduction - In 2010, the standard deduction of taxpayers filing married joint status is twice the amount of someone filing un- der the single status. Begin- ning in 2011, the so-called mar- riage penalty is back: joint fil- ers' standard deduction will be only 167 percent (instead of 200 percent) of the single amount. For a married couple in the 28 percent bracket, the result is additional tax of about $525. Coverdell Accounts - The contribution limit to Coverdell education savings accounts will be reduced from $2,000 per year to $500, tax-free distributions will no longer be allowed for elementary and secondary education (only post-secondary education), ed- ucation credits will not be al- lowed in the same year as a Coverdell distribution, and contributions cannot be made to Coverdell account and Sec 529 in the same year. Home Energy Improvement Credit - The $1,500 credit for making improvements that in- crease the energy efficiency of a taxpayer's home expires af- ter 2010. ,Estate Tax- The estate tax, which was eliminated for 2010, returns in 2011 with an exemp- tion of $1 million dollars (down from $3.5 million in 2009), and maximum tax rate 55 percent, up from 45 percent. On top all these changes, there are the Health Care pro- visions that are taking effect 2013, including the following: increasing the medical deduc- tion floor to 10 percent for most individuals (up from 7.5 percent), adding a 3.8 percent unearned income surtax to high-income taxpayers, and tacking on an additional .9 percent to the current 1.45 per- cent hospitalization insurance portions to the FICA withhold, ing (or the SE tax in case of self-employed individuals). The surtax and additional HI withholding apply to income in excess of $250,000 for mar- ried joint fillers, $125,000 for married individuals filing sep- arately and $200,000 for others.
