Bloomberg reports: US stock market crashed to record high

Earlier it became known that Biden is considering the possibility of increasing the tax rate on capital gains almost doubled: from 20% to 39.6% for persons whose annual income is more than $1 million.

Bloomberg experts noted that taking into account the existing additional tax on investment income, this means that the total federal tax rate for wealthy investors could be 43.4%.
