THAT MEDICARE SURTAX Questions abound regarding the Medicare surtax, though few people will be involved and it starts in 2013. Here are the answers: There is a 0.9 percent surtax on earned income over $200,000 for individuals, over $250,000 for couples--not deductible for self-employed individuals. The second Medicare surtax, for the same income group, is on unearned income-interest, dividends, capital gains and distributions from retirement plans like IRAs, Roths, profit 'sharing plans and defined benefit plans. Annuity payouts are exempt. Where this surtax may hit a wider target is in the sale of a primary home. A substantial gain could indeed kick a couple's income for the year well above the trigger point. However, the seller can exclude up to $250,000-$500,000 for couples filling jointly--of the home sale profit from capital-gains taxes. Second homes, however, do not qualify for this exclusion. Questions about taxes? We've got the answers you need at: 307 W. Main St., Quincy 283-0680 Serving Plumas County for ovel 80 years, Hunter Hardware is a family owned and operated business.
