Mr. Buffett long has urged lawmakers to raise income-tax rates on the wealthiest, arguing that his secretary paid a higher effective rate than he did last year. President Obama embraced the concept, and went along with Senate Democrats' proposal for a 5.6% surtax on those making $1 million a year or more.
Mr. Buffett's adjusted gross income was $62,855,038 in 2010, according to the letter, while his taxable income was $39,814,784. He said he paid $15,300 in payroll tax, and $6,923,494 in federal income tax. That made for an effective tax rate of 17.4%.

    What You Need In A Financial Survival Kit

    Financial experts such as the members of the American Institute of CPAs recommend having a personal financial kit that is easily carried in the event of an emergency. These experts suggest all original documents be kept in either a fire-proof safe in your home, or preferably, in a safety deposit box at a bank away from your residence. If a natural disaster strikes your neighborhood, it could also strike the local bank leaving you without a resource for those documents or cash. The average cost of a safe-deposit box is $30-$50 per year.

    If an emergency is imminent, you will want a basic kit that you can easily carry with you after a disaster. If your home is destroyed, this kit should have copies of all the basic information you'll need. This "kit" can be a sealable plastic bag, or a small plastic storage container that you can easily "grab-and-run" with. There are many documents you will need to help you recover after a disaster strikes, most should be kept in the fire-proof safe or safe deposit box. This basic kit should consist of essential documents to take care of your basic needs.
  • A copy of your driver's license or state identification
  • Copies of your credit cards and bank account information
  • Copies of current prescriptions, including eyeglasses, and any medical histories that EMS and medical personnel would need to know - allergies, asthma, heart meds, diabetic condition, etc.
  • List of your emergency contacts - family members, doctors, insurance agents, financial advisors
  • Insurance cards, policy numbers and agents contact information - Life, health, homeowner, auto, renters
  • Safe deposit box information - name of financial institution, list of the contents and the key
  • Copies of any living wills, power of attorney or medical power of attorney
  • Enough cash for living expenses for three days for your entire family
  • Prepaid phone cards, cell phone charger
