Ask A CPA - Net Investment Income Tax

Will I Have To Pay Both The 3.8% Net Investment Income Tax And The Additional .9% Medicare Tax?

You may be subject to both taxes, but not on the same type of income. The 0.9% Additional Medicare Tax applies to individuals’ wages, compensation and self-employment income over certain thresholds, but it does not apply to income items included in Net Investment Income
