"In a taxable account, all fixed-income/bond investments, other than munis, are taxed at your marginal federal tax rate (tax bracket). That would include CDs, Money Markets, Treasuries and TIPS, Mortgage Securities, Corporate Bonds, etc."..........

What is the marginal federal tax rate if an individual is in the top bracket?

Ultimately, I'm tring to determine which has the better after tax return in a taxable account: a stock with a qualified dividend or a bond with a comparable yield as a stock?

Thanks for you help...
