Capital Gains and Dividends Capital gains and losses are assigned to baskets. Five possible tax rates will apply to most capital gains and​ losses: • Ordinary income tax rates​ (up to 39.6​% in 2013​) for gains on assets held one year or less. • 28​% rate on collectibles gains and includible Sec. 1202 gains • 20​% rate on gains on assets held for more than one year and qualified dividends​ (for taxpayers whose regular tax bracket is 39.6​%) • 15​% rate on gains on assets held for more than one year and qualified dividends​ (for taxpayers whose regular tax bracket is higher than 15​% and less than 39.6​%) • 00​% rate on gains on assets held for more than one year and qualified dividends​ (for taxpayers whose regular tax bracket is not higher than 15​%) ​Note: The net investment income of higher income taxpayers​ (modified AGI greater than \$200,000 for single and \$250,000 for married filing​ jointly) also may be subject to an additional tax of 3.8​%. Net investment income includes dividends and capital​ gains, along with other types of investment income. Estates and trusts potentially owe the 3.8​% incremental tax on net investment​ income, but the inception point for this tax is at a much lower amount than it is for individuals. The tax is levied on the lesser of​ (1) the​ entity's undistributed net investment income or​ (2) its modified adjusted gross income​ (MAGI) in excess of the amount at which the top tax rate of 39.6​% begins \$11,950 in 2013​). MAGI is AGI reduced by the personal​ exemption, expenses that would not have been incurred if the property were not held by an estate or​ trust, and the distribution deduction. Net investment income​ includes, among other​ things, interest,​ dividends, annuities,​ royalties, rents, and net gains from certain property​ dispositions, all reduced by allocable deductions. a. What is the​ trust's total tax​ liability? b. Compare this tax to the amount of tax an unmarried individual filing single would pay on the same amount of rental and interest income​ (with no other​ income). Assume the individual claims the standard deduction. What is the tax an individual filing a joint return would pay?
