Dividends and their capital gain tax rates
Through 2012, dividends received by an individual shareholder from domestic corporations (and certain foreign corporations) are treated as net capital gain for purposes of applying the capital gain tax rates. This means dividends are taxed at 15% for taxpayers whose marginal rate is 25% or higher, and 0% for those in the 10% and 15% Tax Brackets.
These rates are in effect through 2012. Capital losses cannot offset the dividend income for purpose of the tax computation. Dividends on stock held in a retirement plan or traditional IRA will not benefit from the new lower rates.
