When figuring out which tax bracket you are in, do you use just the figures for pension and Social Security? Or do interest and dividends affect the rate also? I seem to be having a major senior moment tonight.What I am really trying to do is figure out how badly my husband and I are going to be hurt by the change in how dividends are going to be taxed in 2011. I might be better off selling some of the stocks that don't go anywhere but pay wonderful dividends. In 2011, the dividends will be taxed at 36 or 39.6% vs. the present 15%. We might be better off in the future selling growth stocks with only 20% of the gain going to taxes.NancyB
