The President-elect’s tax plan: Donald Trump’s election victory, along with Republican control of both houses of Congress, means that there will likely be big changes in tax law coming soon. Trump will be inaugurated on January 20, 2017, and considering the “100-day rule” (i.e., much of what a president accomplishes is done in the first 100 days), we can expect the tax law changes to be swift. It’s unknown, at this time, whether those changes will be effective in the 2017 or 2018 tax years, but it’s likely that the effective dates of any changes will be spread over those two years. In reviewing Trump’s tax plans, two points should be kept in mind: ● His tax plans are largely broad-brush, with few specifics. The plan is briefly stated on his website1 and he didn’t fill in many details in his campaign speeches; and ● The House GOP has its own “Better Way” tax reform blueprint.2 While that blueprint shares some similarities with Trump’s proposals, there are also many differences. There will likely have to be compromise if a quick consensus cannot be reached. Basic individual tax changes Trump’s plan would collapse the current seven tax brackets to three brackets: Further changes to basic individual taxation are: ● Personal and dependent exemptions are eliminated; ● The head of household filing status is eliminated; and ● The standard deduction is increased to $30,000 for joint filers and $15,000 for single filers. Tax rate Married filing joint Single 12% Less than $75,000 Less than $37,500 25% $75,000–$225,000 $37,500–$112,500 33% More than $225,000 More than $112,500 Comment These rates correspond somewhat closely to current rates, with the exceptions of the current 35% and 39.6% rates. For example, the current 25% rate for married filing joint kicks in at taxable income of $75,300, whereas under the Trump plan it woud be $75,000. The 33% rate under current law begins at $231,400, versus $225,000 under the Trump plan. However, under current law there’s an in-between rate of 28% that starts at $151,900. Comment The increase in the standard deduction means that about 60% of taxpayers who currently itemize will no longer itemize. This is likely to remain true as long as mortgage interest rates are low and taxpayers pay relatively little in home mortgage interest. Also, the increase in the standard deduction will likely mean that most low- to mid-income taxpayers will have a slightly reduced tax burden. However, with the loss of head of household filing status and the loss of exemptions, a single parent will likely pay more, especially if that single parent has more than one dependent child. FederalTaxletter® Other individual tax changes Other individual tax changes occurring under the Trump tax plan include: ● Itemized deductions will be capped at $200,000 for joint filers and $100,000 for singles; ● The alternative minimum tax will be eliminated; ● The tax plan specifically eliminates the 3.8% Net Investment Income Tax. However, under other portions of his platform, Trump intends to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This will presumably also eliminate the 0.9% Additional Medicare Tax, the penalty for not having insurance, the Premium Tax Credit, and other taxes under the ACA; and ● The existing capital gains rate structure (maximum rate of 20%) will be retained “with new tax brackets.” Spidell's Federal Taxletter - by Tim Hilger, CPA

Seven Tips to Protect Your Computer Online The Internal Revenue Service, the states and the tax industry urge you to be safe online and remind you to take important steps to help protect yourself against identity theft. Taxes. Security. Together. Working in partnership with you, we can make a difference. Scammers, hackers and identity thieves are looking to steal your personal information – and your money. But there are simple steps you can take to help protect yourself, like keeping your computer software up-to-date and giving out your personal information only when you have a good reason. We all have a role to play to protect your tax account. There are just a few easy and practical steps you can take to protect yourself as you conduct your personal business online. Here are some best practices you can follow to protect your tax and financial information: 1. Understand and Use Security Software. Security software helps protect your computer against the digital threats which are prevalent online. Generally, your operating system will include security software or you can access free security software from well-known companies or Internet providers. Other options may have an annual licensing fee and offer more features. Essential tools include a firewall, virus/malware protection and file encryption if you keep sensitive financial/tax documents on your computer. Security suites often come with firewall, anti-virus and anti-spam, parental controls and privacy protection. File encryption to protect your saved documents may have to be purchased separately. Do not buy security software offered as an unexpected pop-up ad on your computer or email! It’s likely from a scammer. 2. Allow Security Software to Update Automatically. Set your security software to update automatically. Malware – malicious software – evolves constantly and your security software suite is updated routinely to keep pace. 3. Look for the “S” for encrypted “https” websites. When shopping or banking online, always look to see that the site uses encryption to protect your information. Look for https at the beginning of the web address. The “s” is for secure. Unencrypted sites begin with an http address. Additionally, make sure the https carries through on all pages, not just the sign-on page. 4. Use Strong Passwords. Use passwords of at least 10 to 12 characters, mixing letters, numbers and special characters. Don’t use your name, birthdate or common words. Don’t use the same password for several accounts. Keep your password list in a secure place or use a password manager. Don’t share your password with anyone. Calls, texts or emails pretending to be from legitimate companies or the IRS asking you to update your accounts or seeking personal financial information are generally scams. 5. Secure your wireless network. A wireless network sends a signal through the air that allows you to connect to the Internet. If your home or business wi-fi is unsecured it also allows any computer within range to access your wireless and steal information from your computer. Criminals also can use your wireless to send spam or commit crimes that would be traced back to your account. Always encrypt your wireless. Generally, you must turn on this feature and create a password. 6. Be cautious when using public wireless networks. Public wi-fi hotspots are convenient but often not secure. Tax or financial Information you send though websites or mobile apps may be accessed by someone else. If a public Wi-Fi hotspot does not require a password, it probably is not secure. If you are transmitting sensitive information, look for the “s” in https in the website address to ensure that the information will be secure. 7. Avoid phishing attempts. Never reply to emails, texts or pop-up messages asking for your personal, tax or financial information. One common trick by criminals is to impersonate a business such as your financial institution, tax software provider or the IRS, asking you to update your account and providing a link. Never click on links even if they seem to be from organizations you trust. Go directly to the organization’s website. Legitimate businesses don’t ask you to send sensitive information through unsecured channels. To learn additional steps you can take to protect your personal and financial data, visit Taxes. Security. Together. Also read Publication 4524, Security Awareness for Taxpayers. Each and every taxpayer has a set of fundamental rights they should be aware of when dealing with the IRS. These are your Taxpayer Bill of Rights. Explore your rights and our obligations to protect them on IRS.gov.

Identity Theft Tax Tips Available: WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service, state revenue departments and the tax industry today released the first in a series of special tax tips designed to provide people critical information to help protect their tax and financial data. The first of the Security Awareness Tax Tip series provides seven ways people can protect their computers, which takes on added importance as people prepare for the holidays and the 2016 tax season approaches. A new tip will be available each Monday through the start of the tax season in January. “These are common-sense tips to help taxpayers,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “While many people follow these, we all know someone who can miss taking critical steps to protect their sensitive personal and financial information, which can be used to file a fraudulent tax return.” The “Taxes. Security. Together.” campaign – a joint effort announced last week between the IRS, states and the private-sector tax industry -- is designed to raise public awareness that even routine actions on the Internet and their personal devices can affect the safety of their financial and tax data. The education campaign will complement the expanded series of important new protections the IRS, states and tax industry are putting in place for the start of the 2016 filing season to address tax-related identity theft. The tips, which will be in English and Spanish, will be available on IRS.gov as well as through the states and many in the tax industry. Taxpayers can also subscribe to receive these tips by email – as well as other important tax information for the upcoming tax season. People can also subscribe to receive updates in Spanish. In coming weeks, these tax tips will touch on key topics such as ongoing phishing schemes and aggressive phone scammers posing as IRS officials. Other tips will discuss the importance of protecting sensitive paper and electronic tax records as well as watching out for friends and family who don’t keep their computer’s software security updated. “With more than 150 million households filing tax returns, we all have a part to play,” Koskinen said. “With the public’s help, this will greatly strengthen and improve the new tools being put in place by the IRS, states and industry this January.” The IRS, tax industry and states will also be releasing additional YouTube videos highlighting these tips as tax season approaches.
