As a tax preparer, why don’t you tell your clientel about the difference between “Wages” and “Income”.
OK, you've got me puzzled - what does that have to do with this topic and why do you insult me by assuming I don't?
Wages are line 7 and are reported with a W-2. Everything else is investment, business, retirement or other income and potentially has different taxability.
Perhaps you are cryptically talking about the pending  loss of the 15% max on Qualified Dividends and LT Capital Gains. If so, say YOUR opinion straight out please.
