Although high income folks should be aware that starting for 2013, if you get into the 39.6% bracket, the tax rate on your qualified dividends and long term capital gains goes up to 20%

FWIW, the effective tax I paid on long term gains 2 years ago was 22% due to AMT & phase out of deductions, at least according to TT.
