    "Officials in both parties said the agreement would prevent tax increases at incomes below US$400,000 for individuals and US$450,000 for couples.

    At higher levels, the rate would rise to a maximum of 39.6 per cent from the current 35 per cent. Capital gains and dividends in excess of those amounts would be taxed at 20 per cent, up from 15 per cent."


    What is the amount that they are referring to?
    If it is $400k for individual and $450k for couples regarding capital gains and dividends, then most people will not be affected by the change.
