If the chart I'm looking at is correct, dividends will no longer be at 15% but will be taxed as normal income.

Agreed however to wait until we know for sure.

Am I remembering correctly the BTCs expire after the election rather than before? Because of that perhaps this time they will indeed be allowed to expire.

Yes, they expire after the election - 2013, Jan 1 I presume.
Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!

The good news is the majority of my dividends are from TE national muni bond funds.

IMO the likelihood of a simple reversion are low. More likely an extension, or at least a hybrid change. With politicians, you never know for sure.
