3.8% Capital Gains Tax Starts in 2013 … How Will It Affect You ?

According to the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) a new real estate tax will go into effect in 2013.

The fact is that this capital gains tax of 3.8%  will impact relatively few sellers. First of all, it targets home sellers with  high annual incomes  (individuals earning $200,000 per year plus, and married couples earning at least $250,000) … who reap sizable profits on the sale of their homes ($250,000 in profit for an single individual …$500,000 if you’re talking about a married couple).   Link here for the pdf tax form.

And even for sellers who qualify under these two conditions, a tax may still not be levied. 

The reason why?   Other tax details need to be taken into consideration before the 3.8 percent tax can kick  in.   Simply having a high income (even if you make a substantial profit on the sale of your  home)  doesn’t necessarily indicate that you’ll be charged  3.8%  in capital gains tax.
