2013 Medicare Tax Increases: New Issues for Tax Return Preparers

The 3.8% surcharge is assessed on investment income and capital gains and is calculated differently for individuals than for trusts and estates. Individuals whose income is above a threshold amount will pay an additional Medicare surtax of .9%, so the top Medicare tax rate will be 2.35% (1.45% plus .9%) for wages over the threshold.

Selecting the appropriate filing status, properly computing the tax, and understanding the definition of net investment income could have a significant impact on tax obligations. The IRS has issued proposed guidance, but will not release final regulations until next spring.

Listen as our authoritative panel reviews the new Medicare surcharge rules and offers guidance in understanding the definition of net investment income. The panel will focus on selection of the filing status, outline ways to compute the tax, and discuss the Medicare surtax.

Outline:

I. Net investment income tax

  • Definition of net investment income
  • Computing the tax
  • Filing status selection implications

II. 9% Medicare surtax on wages and self-employment income

  • Issues for employers
  • Calculations
  • IRS guidance

Benefits:

The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What complexities should tax preparers be cognizant of with respect to the new taxes?
  • What is included in net investment income?
  • What impact could the selection of filing status have on the tax calculations?
  • Can individuals work with their employers to arrange for withholding of the additional Medicare taxes, if the employees' wages might not have triggered an automatic withholding threshold?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.

Upon completing this seminar, you will have increased knowledge about the new Medicare surcharge rules and a better understanding of the definition of net investment income and ways to compute the tax.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
