With President Obama’s victory at the polls, it is now abundantly clear that Obamacare is here to stay. So far, we’ve experienced only the easy parts of the massive health care law, but starting in 2013, the hard parts will begin to take effect.
In particular, two additional Medicare taxes will kick in. These tax increases will affect only high-income taxpayers: married couples with adjusted gross incomes over $250,000, and singles with AGIs over $200,000.
This is a tiny percentage of the population — only about 4 percent of all taxpayers earn more than $200,000. However, the one-third of taxpayers who itemize could be affected by the more restrictive limits on deducting medical expenses.
Everyone who works — whether a business owner or an employee — is required to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes. Employees pay one-half of these taxes through payroll deductions; the employer must pony up the other half and send the entire payment to the Internal Revenue Service.
Starting in 2013, the 2.9 percent Medicare tax will go up by 0.9 percent. However, this increase will apply only to married taxpayers with wage or self-employment income of $250,000 and single taxpayers with income of $200,000. Only the amount over these thresholds is subject to the additional 0.9 percent tax.
Starting in 2013, high-income taxpayers will be subject to a brand-new Medicare tax on their “unearned income.” A 3.8 percent Medicare contributions tax will be imposed on the lesser of (1) the taxpayer’s net investment income, or (2) any excess of modified adjusted gross income over $200,000 ($250,000 for married taxpayers filing jointly).
Thus, all single taxpayers with MAGI over $200,000 and married taxpayers with MAGI over $250,000 will be subject to this tax. This is a small proportion of the population, but a significant one for the real estate industry.
