Here's one impact if the health care reform legislation becomes law. This is from NYT Bucks Blog
Beginning in 2013, married couples with modified adjusted gross incomes of more than $250,000 (or $200,000 for singles) will pay higher Medicare payroll taxes, as well as an additional 3.8 percent tax on investment income, including capital gains, dividends, interest, royalties, rents and other unearned income.
Sam at BestCashCow mentioned that this excludes income from municipal bonds.
