Thoughts about the "Net Investment Income Tax"?


3.8% on net investments renders STCGs as one of the highest taxed items in the US taxcode. Real estate ramifications for both rentals and sales.

How do you expect NIIT will affect overall investing, markets, etc. --- if at all?

Thoughts on avoidance?

e.g.,
Liquidating a ton of LTCGs prior to Jan1st.
Will also shed STCGs if we'd not anticipate holding 12mos.

Won't affect much. You do realize there are relatively high income limits as well, correct? Like $200k I believe.

May cause some acceleration of taking cap gains this month but not much.

Sure.... And Companies won't change their investment strategies in order to avoid tax ramifications.
