Dividends4Life: Buffett Looking For Dividend Tax Hikes

Buffett Looking For Dividend Tax Hikes

Posted by D4L | Thursday, March 22, 2012 | | 0 comments »

With no desire for current income from any Berkshire shares, how well does he relate to shareholders whose needs are more typical? Buffett has said that he doesn't think he should be paying a lower tax rate than his secretary, but apparently he also doesn't think that his secretary, once retired, should live off the income from Berkshire stock.

So now Obama proposes a tax rate on dividends that would be vastly different for Buffett and for his secretary — if Berkshire ever did pay dividends. The trouble is that the new tax rate would likely have a greater effect on whether dividends get distributed at all than on how they might be taxed if such distributions occurred.
