The best summary I have seen of the new tax compromise passed by the US Senate and now pending in the house is here--

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/01/01/us/the-mcconne...

>Dividends and Capital gains stay at 15% for most of us, but go to 20% for incomes over $400k single/$450k married permanently.

>Estate tax to 40% for amounts over $5mm single or $10mm family permanently.

>AMT indexed to inflation permanently

>Extends unemployment, the farm bill, delays fiscal cliff spending cuts and Medicare payment cuts to physicians

>No action on the temp reduction in withholding or the debt ceiling. Republicans still want more cost cutting.

I saw an AP story indicating changes in the rules for conversion of IRAs to a Roth, but search turned up no details.
