Have you sold your dividend stocks, or are you preparing to do so?
Do you think the tax increase will impact the thousands of Seniors who rely on dividend payments to fund their retirements?
The companies will pay out the special dividends now while the rates are low. And then will put out much smaller dividends paid at a much higher rate later. The income they once provided will 1. not be paid and 2. be paid at a higher tax rate. Either way, not worth owning as a dividend income stock.
