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?
