I think any income that Buffett got from cap gains was due to his trading activity, not a 4% SWR.

He released some tax numbers last October:
What Did Warren Buffett Really Earn? - Total Return - WSJ
... but that doesn't break it down very well.
He also spends over $1M per year for his personal private jet called Indefensible, part of which I presume might be for personal use and would be considered taxable income.

I could be wrong, but I thought he'd given that up for a NetJets card.

Oh, the joys of being in the 0.001%!

Can't you see yourself in the nursing home saying, " Darn! Wish I'd spent more time at the office instead of wasting time with family and friends."
