Hillary Clinton on Taxes

Clinton has laid out a comprehensive proposal for capital gains tax reform, in order to discourage the short-term speculation mentality she terms “quarterly capitalism” and encourage long-term investments.


“First I'm proposing a reform of taxes on capital gains – the profits earned by the sale of stock and other assets - to promote and reward far-sighted investments. The current definition of a 'long-term holding period' – just one year – is woefully inadequate.

(13:17 – 14:29)
That may count as 'long-term' for my baby granddaughter, but not for the American economy. It's no way to run a tax system. So as president, I would move to a six-year sliding scale that provides real incentives for long-term investments. For taxpayers in the top bracket – families earning more than $465,000 a year, any gains from selling stock in the first two years would be taxed just like ordinary income. Then the rate would decrease each year until it returns to the current rate. This means that from the moment investors buy into a company, they'll be more focused on its future growth strategy than its immediate profits, and so will some executives who are paid in part with stock or stock options.
