Capital gains tax changes and your business

As we discussed last month, the much-talked-about fiscal cliff made included some changes to capital gains tax rates. Capital gains tax for households earning more than $450,000 (or individuals making more than $400,000) will also jumped from 15 percent to 20 percent. This combines with the health-care reform taxes, bringing the top federal tax on long-term capital gains to 23.8 percent.

What does the fiscal cliff deal mean to me?

As Alameda County residents celebrated the end of one year and the beginning of a new one, members of Congress were busy reaching an agreement that prevented the country from going over the so-called fiscal cliff.

1993 California tax law ruled illegal

California is in competition with other states. We want the smartest children to come to our colleges. We would like people to buy our oranges rather than Florida's. And we are rightfully proud of Silicon Valley's reputation, Hollywood's entertainment value and our beautiful national parks.

Facebook executive saves on taxes, ditches the U.S.

If you've ever tried to get someone to do something they don't want to do, you may agree with the concept that people do things for their own reasons, and not for yours. We may never truly know the reasons that led a Facebook executive to renounce his U.S. citizenship and leave our sunny California skies. However, we do know the result of that decision.
