There are too many capital letters in this article's title, but I'm not really sure how to lower case it. RickK 01:24, 7 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Well, it's worse than that. It's misleading to call it a "dependent deduction" since it's applicable to the taxpayer(s) on the return, too. I don't know if it really even needs its own page. Tax people call this a "personal exemption", so it might be better to use the standard terminology. gbroiles 19:53, 8 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Yes, it's technically a deduction for personal exemption under 26 U.S.C. § 151, and applies to the taxpayer, taxpayer's spouse, and dependents. Maybe, as editor gbroiles has implied, the article should be renamed. Stay tuned. Yours, Famspear 17:54, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

OK, I've renamed the article. Famspear 18:04, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

I believe capital gains on collectibles are taxed at the maximum rate: 28%. See and Alice 61 (talk) 19:21, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
