Getting a Christmas tree? There’s a tax for that

Getting a Christmas tree? Get ready to pay a USDA tax on any fresh cut tree you decide to buy. The Obama federal government created a national marketing program to advertise the virtues of real Christmas trees. And this Christmas tree tax is what will pay for that marketing program.

The Christmas tree industry requested this initiative to fund Christmas tree research and marketing, the program will be funded solely by the industry, and the government is not imposing any tax on Christmas trees,” an Agriculture Department spokesman explains.

Obama’s IRS ObamaCARE tax called Shared Responsibility Payment

obama-irs-logoWhen you file your taxes next year, you will notice a new tax called the Shared Responsibility Payment. Obama’s IRS which added 16,500 IRS agents because of ObamaCARE will include this new tax on your 2014 tax return.

House of Cards may leave Maryland because of taxes

House of Cards is a popular Netflix with the upside down flag. I don’t watch it, but know many who do. House of Cards is filmed in Maryland, and now they may leave the overtaxed, over regulated, Marxist state because of taxes. Wouldn’t that be ironic? House of Cards provides about 6,000 jobs to Maryland and brings an estimated $250 million to Maryland’s economy. I’m sure Texas of Florida would love to have those jobs and that revenue.

New taxes in ObamaCARE coming in 2014

obamacare-insertAs if ObamaCARE itself isn’t bad enough, get ready for some brand new taxes in less than a week as we approach 2014. Lets again thank all the clueless rubes and leftist nuts who voted to re-elect Obama in 2012! Give yourself a standing ovation!

Regardless of what health plan you end up with in 2014 and beyond, ObamaCARE implements a 2% levy on ALL plans.

There’s a new $2 fee per policy that goes into a new medical-research trust fund called the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.

3.5% ‘user fee’ to sell medical plans on the HealthCare.gov Web site.
2.3% medical-device tax that will inflate the cost of items such as pacemakers, stents and prosthetic limbs.

hose with high out-of-pocket medical expenses also will get smaller income-tax deductions.
Americans are currently allowed to deduct expenses that exceed 7.5 percent of their annual income. The threshold jumps to 10 percent under ObamaCare, costing taxpayers about $15 billion over 10 years.
Individual tax filers earning more than $200,000 and families earning more than $250,000 will pay an added 0.9 percent Medicare surtax on top of the existing 1.45 percent Medicare payroll tax. They’ll also pay an extra 3.8 percent Medicare tax on unearned income, such as investment dividends, rental income and capital gains.

A new ObamaCARE tax of 9.5% has been revealed by Blue Cross / Blue Shield of Michigan. They call it a 9.5% ‘fee’ when it’s really just another unforeseen ObamaCARE tax. @MyCancellation has been posting cancelled health insurance plans on Twiter since Obama. This one plan hasn’t been cancelled, instead it informs the person starting January 1st, 2014 will be ‘new taxes and fees’ collected on ‘behalf of the state and federal government.’ The ‘fee’ aka tax collected by Blue Cross / Blue Shield on behalf of the US Government is 9.5% of the the current premium. This particular individual pays a monthly premium of $600 starting next year because of ObamaCARE. That will be $57 per month, or $684 dollars for the year in new taxes all because of ObamaCARE.

Are you ready for the ObamaCARE wedding tax?

obama-mccain-gayGet ready for the ObamaCARE wedding tax. If you are a married couple, especially with no kids, and are getting up their in years, you’d better stop earning. Otherwise, you will be taxed into oblivion thanks to the ObamaCARE wedding tax. Let’s use the PJ Media example:

ObamaCARE wedding tax

If they have identical earnings totaling $65,000, which will usually net down to $50,000 or below after all income and payroll taxes, their Obamacare exchange Silver Plan premium next year with the same earnings will be $16,382, or about one-third of what used to be their take-home pay. (And they call it the “Affordable Care Act”?)

What can this couple do? Well, they could decide to earn a few thousand dollars less, which will negate the five-figure premium hit. Encouraging ordinarily willing workers to put in less effort isn’t good in any economy, but especially not this one. But if either spouse’s earnings are unpredictable or hard to precisely track, they could still “mess up” and get socked with a premium they can’t afford.

The “easiest” solution would be to avoid the “wedding tax” entirely by getting divorced while still living together. Here’s what would happen if they make that choice:

NAACP Chairman Julian Bond: Legitimate For IRS To target tea-party cause they are racist

obama2Julian Bond is chairman emeritus of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP.) The NAACP has a long history of racism and corruption, but they are tax exempt status. Julian Bond appeared on MSNBC to spew that it is legit for the IRS to be targeting the tea party and conservative groups is legitimate because they are racists or something. The pile of sh*t Bond also declared that the tea-party is ‘the Taliban wing of American politics.’ If that were the case you would think leftists like Julian Bond, Obama, Hillary Clinton etc would embrace the tea-party. These ‘people’ are apologists for the Taliban and Muslim terrorists.
