LESS than a year ago, people were worried about a variety of tax increases in 2013, from income and investment taxes going up to the exemption on estate and gift taxes going down. This year, without any last-minute negotiation around major tax policy, people are far less focused on taxes, and that has accountants and tax lawyers worried.

As the summer comes to a close, we can look back at some stalled 2013 tax proposals that just might be a sign of things to come.

This ominous sounding legislation includes many provisions designed to make investment managers and their investors less wealthy or perhaps poorer depending on your view of the glass as either half full or half empty.

Legislatures rarely enact laws proactively to prevent problems. While the reasons may vary, they tend to instead react to significant events or scandals. For example, in Connecticut, the mass shooting of children and teachers in a Newtown elementary school last December spawned stringent firearms regulations. Allegations that former Connecticut governor John Rowland accepted gifts and favors from state employees and private contractors led to changes in state contracting, ethics, and campaign finance laws.
