Myth About 3.8% Tax on all Real Estate Sales Will Not Die...
A false rumor about a transfer tax on all real estate sales is once again making the rounds on the Internet and in e-mails. The information being forwarded claims that the Affordable Care Act contains a 3.8% tax on all real estate sales. Not so.
Though the act does include a 3.8% tax on some investment income, it will not come into play for the majority of home sales. First, the tax applies only to people with adjusted gross income of $200,000 ($250,000 for a joint return). Also, homeowners who sell their principal residence will still enjoy the exclusion of $250,000 of gain realized on the sale of the home ($500,000 for married couples) as long as they have lived in their primary residence 2 of the last 5 years - otherwise standard capital gains taxes apply.

"Richard is an extremely driven individual with strong command of retail strategy. His business experience is deep and he leverages it to build an intelligent and holistic plan of attack that can be a complete game changer. His approach is consistent and he drives himself and his team toward a common goal with precision. His peers respect him and admire his team because he treats people well, listens and accepts feedback, provides valuable insight and has an extremely positive attitude. He has a very strong analytical mind.
I have learned a great deal from Richard and consider him a mentor. His pure and relentless desire to win will always lead him toward success. When I arrived at Radio Shack with limited retail knowledge, Richard immediately took me under his wing and taught me the important factors of successful retail, which enabled me to help his team build a strong foundation of leadership. As this was not in his job description, he did this on his own and showed me immediately why he was sought out for his expertise and mentoring ability. I worked with him in several capacities, and have enormous regard for his intellectual and professional approach to manager coaching. He is a person with true strength of character, which is critical to helping managers building leaders and careers. I am proud of what we have accomplished together and will always reflect on it and draw from it as I move forward in my career."
