On Joe Biden’s Capital Gains Tax Proposal

A Proposal for Now

By Joel Lee

President Biden will soon propose nearly doubling the capital gains tax for wealthy people to 39.6%, according to Bloomberg.

PS: Wealthy people = individuals earning $1 million or more.

Biden is expected to announce the tax hike next week as part of the pitch for his “American Families Plan,” the highly anticipated sequel to the $2.3 trillion infrastructure proposal he released a few weeks ago. 

  • To pay for the first plan, which includes spending on bridges and broadband, Biden wants to hike taxes on corporations.
  • To pay for his second proposal, which includes spending on childcare and paid leave for workers, he wants to hike taxes on wealthy investors.

NOTE: Physicians and all investors knew this dramatic hike was coming (the proposal was in candidate Biden’s tax plan), but the report jarred Wall Street nonetheless. It could lead to a lot of asset sales before 2021’s out.
