OIC Adds "Taxes and Investing" Addendum to Reflect Impact of Tax Legislation on Options
Chicago—June 30, 2003
The Options Industry Council (OIC) announced today that an addendum to its Taxes and Investing brochure is now available on the OIC Web site at www.888options.com/store/taxguide_new.pdf. The new addendum, written by Richard J. Shapiro, Tax Partner, Ernst & Young LLP, explains the impact of the Jobs Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act (JAGTRRA) of 2003 on options.
New topics include:
- Reduction of Tax Rate on Capital Gains
- Reduction of Tax Rate on Dividends
- Accelerated Reduction of Individual Tax Rates
The addendum serves as a temporary update to OIC's Taxes and Investing brochure which provides a general discussion of the tax law affecting options investments. A comprehensive version of the brochure, incorporating topics covered in the addendum as well as additional information from JAGTRRA, will be completed shortly.
