(Bloomberg) -- President Joe Biden wants to end the preferential U.S. tax treatment of investment income that has benefited the nation’s wealthy as he seeks to fund a sweeping new social-spending program. But he will need to overcome a major political hurdle in Congress to do so.The White House plans to propose almost doubling the capital gains tax rate for those earning $1 million or more, to 39.6%, according to people familiar with the proposal. That wouldn’t affect many. Only about 0.32% of American taxpayers reported adjusted gross income of more than $1 million and capital gains or losses on their returns, according to Internal Revenue Service tax return data from 2018.The move would send the top federal rate on the appreciation in assets sold by the rich as high as 43.4% when including a surtax to help pay for Obamacare. And it would upend a century-old precedent of under-taxing investment relative to wages and salaries.Surging stock and property prices over the past year only strengthened the Biden team’s determination to follow through on campaign pledges to demand higher taxes from the best-off. The president is betting the initiative will be popular enough to win passage in Congress, where he can’t lose a single Democratic vote in the Senate and only a handful in the House, since Republicans are likely to be united in opposition.Stocks dropped the most in more than a month on the news Thursday, with the S&P 500 Index closing down 0.9%, though futures trading Friday suggested some stabilization. Contracts on the index were up 0.1% as of 8:49 a.m. in New York.“If a 1% fall in stock prices is all that you get from a really major increase in capital gains taxes that’s not a big problem,” Nobel economics laurate Paul Krugman said on Bloomberg TV. “Biden has an ambitious agenda” and to help pay for it, “some significant tax increases are going to be part of the story,” he said.Biden campaigned on equalizing the capital gains and income tax rates for wealthy individuals, saying it’s unfair that many of them pay lower rates than middle-class workers.The new marginal 39.6% rate would be an increase from the current base rate of 20%, the people said on the condition of anonymity because the plan is not yet public. A 3.8% tax on investment income that funds Obamacare would be kept in place, they added.Next WeekWhite House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, asked about the capital-gains plan at a press briefing Thursday, said, “we’re still finalizing what the pay-fors look like.” Biden is expected to release the proposal next week as part of the tax increases to finance social spending in the forthcoming American Families Plan.Other measures that the administration has discussed include enhancing the estate tax for the wealthy. Biden has warned that those earning more than $400,000 a year can expect to pay more in taxes. The White House has already rolled out plans for corporate tax hikes, which go to fund the $2.25 trillion infrastructure-focused American Jobs Plan.Republicans have insisted on retaining the 2017 tax cuts implemented by former President Donald Trump, and argued that the current capital-gains framework encourages saving and promotes future economic growth.“It’s going to cut down on investment and cause unemployment,” Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee and former chair of that panel, said of the Biden capital-gains plan. He lauded the result of the 2017 tax cuts, and said, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”GOP lawmakers on Thursday called for repurposing previously appropriated, unused pandemic-relief funds to help pay for their counteroffer infrastructure plan. The group underlined opposition to tax increases, other than a potential revamp of the levies that go toward highway funding in a way that would mean higher taxes on electric vehicles.Earlier: GOP Counters Biden With $568 Billion Infrastructure PlanBiden will detail the American Families Plan in a joint address to Congress on April 28. It is set to include a wave of new spending on children and education, including a temporary extension of an expanded child tax credit that would give parents as much as $300 a month for young children or $250 for those six and older.Biden’s proposal to equalize the tax rates for wage and capital gains income for high earners would greatly curb the favorable tax treatment on so-called carried interest, which is the cut of profits on investments taken by private equity and hedge fund managers.The plan would effectively end carried interest benefits for fund managers making more than $1 million, because they wouldn’t be able to pay lower capital gains rates on their earnings. Those earning less than $1 million may be able to still claim the tax break, unless Biden repeals the tax provision entirely.The capital gains increase would raise $370 billion over a decade, according to an estimate from the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center based on Biden’s campaign platform.Over HalfFor $1 million earners in high-tax states, rates on capital gains could be above 50%. For New Yorkers, the combined state and federal capital gains rate could be as high as 52.22%. For Californians, it could be 56.7%.“It’s enough to bring fear into the taxpayers’ hearts, whether they are a Republican or a Democrat,” Christopher Boyett, a partner at law firm Holland & Knight who advises high-net worth individuals on tax planning, said of the Biden plan. “People are taking this seriously. It’s a high-anxiety time.”Congressional Democrats have separately proposed a series of changes to capital-gains taxation, including imposing the levies annually instead of when they are sold.“There ought to be equal treatment for wages and wealth,” Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat who’s the chamber’s top tax-writer, told reporters in a phone briefing Thursday. “On the Finance Committee we will be ready to raise whatever sums the Senate Democratic caucus thinks are necessary.”(Updates with New York trading in fifth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

The following statement is from Frederick W. Penney, Managing Partner of Penney and Associates Attorneys: https://www.penneylawyers.com/about-our-firm/ Recently I was visiting family and woke up in the morning to have my ritualistic breakfast of cereal and milk. I noticed the only milk in the refrigerator was almond milk. I tried it over the cereal and noticed that the flavor was, in my opinion ok, but clearly not the dairy milk taste that I was raised on. Why is it that almond milk has become so popular and why do I see it more and more prominent near the dairy aisle in the supermarkets? I recall having discussed this topic briefly on the nationally syndicated radio show Radio Law Talk. https://radiolawtalk.com/podcasts/ . Given that I grew up as a country boy and have worked for a few farmers with cattle and orchards during my teenage years, I wondered how this was sitting with Almond Farmers and Dairy Farmers. There have been some recent cases concerning whether almond beverages being labeled as "milk" was a deceptive advertising under the Food and Drug Administration (herein after FDA) laws. Some alleged that saying "almond milk" is misleading consumers to believe that the almond beverage was not a milk but an imitation milk under the law. It all came to a head in 2017 when a lawsuit was filed to determine whether almond beverages could use the word milk in the labeling of their products. See Painter et al., v. Blue Diamond Growers et al., https://cdn.ca9.uscourts.gov/datastore/memoranda/2018/12/20/17-55901.pdf . But before diving into the legal issues, one must try to understand how almonds produce what almond farmers call milk.
Dublin, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Display Driver Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The display driver market is expected to register a CAGR of 5% over the forecast period 2021-2026. The display driver is mainly a semiconductor integrated circuit that provides an interface function between a microprocessor, microcontroller, ASIC, or general-purpose peripheral interface. These are mostly used in peripheral display devices, such as smartwatches, laptops, monitors, smartphones, tablets, TVs, and automotive displays. Factors, such as growing demand for OLED and flexible display for mobile and tablet devices and rapid adoption of smart wearables and AR/VR devices, are increasing the number of display manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region and, therefore, driving the display driver across the world. Increase demand for wireless fitness devices due to the rise in health awareness among the consumer made the smartwatch as a key monitoring device. These are rapidly being adopted by runners, gym-goers, swimmers, and athletes due to their wide range of monitoring capabilities. In 2019, Apple launched Apple watch series 5 that can track heart rate, nervous system, emergency, or inactivity alerts and health-related events. Due to advancements in technology, major players are developing IoT driven advanced watches to improve a user's quality of life. Tesla introduced a 12.3-inch LCD display (with a resolution of 1280 x 480) that shows the car's position on the road, the surrounding traffic, lane markings, and speed. In 2019, it filed a new patent application for a display screen with holographic glass around it that can reduce or eliminate the visibility of a boundary between the displaying portions of the system and the non-displaying portions and introduced a bezel-less display. Moreover, consumer devices and their display change rapidly as major players launch the devices once or twice a year with upgraded technologies to stay above the water; hence they abandon current product lines at a moment's notice and change overnight to meet the market's latest demand. In contrast, in the automotive market, the technologies' lifespan is ten years, with five years of car production and five years of repair period in vehicle services. So, the automotive display makers rely on a stable and lucrative ten-year market for a specific product. Key Market TrendsSmartphone to witness significant growthThe display driver market is promptly driven by the development of the smartphone market around the world. Smartphones offer high quality and performance and act like a computer by providing real-time information. They became an integral part of human lives. Short life span due to upgradation of technology at a rapid speed is forcing major players to invest in research to develop and differentiate their offerings with advanced functionality.For instance, Samsung officially launched its much-awaited "Samsung Galaxy Fold" smartphone in September 2019 that defies the category with a 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode). It is the foldable display that allows users to transform it into a tablet-like device and has six cameras, 21:9 secondary display, and 512GB of onboard storage. Samsung mobile business chief, Koh Dong-jin, at CES told that the company sold between 400,000 to 500,000 Galaxy Fold phones in 2019, which is a pretty good figure for a device that is priced at USD 2,000.Moreover, the 5G network will offer high speed to download full-length movies in seconds and will spike the demand for 5G enabled smartphones. Hence, companies are investing in developing and designing phones with higher resolution and increased memory capacity so that people can download or play video games on the full-sized console.The spread of COVID-19 across the world has hit the smartphone industry quite hard. The majority of countries are under lockdown, which halted manufacturing activities in almost all countries. In China, the outbreak is under control, and smartphone factories are ramping up production aggressively. However, the demand for smartphones is unlikely to pick up as most of the country's economy is highly disturbed. As of 13th April, there are more than 18,00,000 COVID-19 positive cases with over 115,000 fatalities across the world, and the United States is the worst affected country so far with more than 5,60,000 COVID-19 positive cases with 22,000 fatalities.Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market during forecast periodAsia-Pacific is expected to dominate the display driver market during the forecast period as the majority of market vendors are based out of South Korea, China, and Taiwan. Also, the region has a large number of raw material suppliers in addition to low labor costs.The DDIC market for TVs is experiencing significant demand and supply chain shifts. The companies are ramping up its production capacity to meet better image resolution. Moreover, the increasing competition from Taiwan and Korea-based semiconductor components manufacturers are forced to invest in research and development aimed to improve the capabilities of these ICs. For instance, in 2019, MagnaChip, designer, and manufacturer of analog and mixed-signal semiconductor products for high volume consumer electronics invested USD 75,356 that was attributed to development activities for new OLED products.AMOLED in the automotive sector in the Asia-Pacific region is boosting due to the quick adoption of electric cars and increased spending power of the customer. Increase demand for connected and safe vehicle features such as cellular voice connection and navigation are also pushing the demand for display drivers. For instance, Nexus 2020 RX 450hL, the luxury arm of Toyota, launched in 2019, is a self-charging hybrid electric vehicle that has a new touch-display screen in addition to the Lexus-original remote touch interface that allows customers to navigate menus and features with a new remote touchpad on the center console.New concepts such as flexible OLED in the automotive sector can innovate the car display in the future. In February 2020, Cadillac launched 2021 Escalade, a first-ever curved OLED screen in a car, the massive 38-inch display houses LG's P-OLED Digital Cockpit Solution. The all-new software displays the vehicle information and infotainment system. LG collaborated in 2018 with Tesla, Cadillac, and Mercedes, to provide flexible display, and by the end of 2020, it will deliver a similar display in Mercedes Benz vehicles.Competitive LandscapeThe display driver market is toward a consolidated market as it is dominated by a few major players like Mediatek, Fitipower Integrated Technology, Rohm Semiconductor, Novatek Microelectronics, Synaptics, Himax Technologies, and Silicon. These major players, with a prominent share in the market, are focusing on expanding their customer base across foreign countries. These companies are leveraging strategic collaborative initiatives to increase their market share and increase their profitability.March 2020 - MediaTek and Samsung jointly introduced the world's first 8K QLED TV equipped with MediaTek's custom Wi-Fi 6 chipset, the Samsung 8K QLED Y20 model (Q950, Q900). It will offer consumers a more seamless entertainment experience with smoother streaming and gaming, as well as unconstrained internet access.January 2020 - Synaptics, leading developer of human interface solutions, launched innovative new TD7850 Automotive TDDI solution for touchscreens up to 15 inches. Its unique automotive TDDI solution combines a lower BOM and a simplified supply chain, with faster and easier integration for display manufacturers.
