Financial Challenges For High Earners During a Biden Administration

With one of the most contentious elections in history behind us, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. took office on January 20, 2021

With a new administration, high earners especially are left wondering - how will the Biden presidency affect me financially

Until Biden begins enacting changes, we won’t know for sure what to expect. But based on his official campaign platform, past interviews, and projections, we can begin preparing for potential challenges to high earners.

Challenge #1: Expect Higher Taxes

Much of Biden’s tax plan focuses on raising taxes for high earners, corporations, and capital gains. It’s estimated that approximately 80 percent of tax increases would affect the top one percent of income earners.1

For those earning over $400,000 annually, Biden is projected to raise taxes including individual income, capital gains, and payroll taxes.2 Households with an adjusted gross income of $400,000 a year or less will likely see less dramatic tax changes, if any changes at all.

Under Biden’s proposed tax plan, corporate tax rates are expected to rise to 28 percent, up from the current 21 percent. Additionally, he may set a minimum tax of 15 percent on shareholders’ profits and increase the taxes on foreign earnings of companies overseas.3
