The Obama administration set things up so deceitfully that the real taxes on Obamacare begin after the 2012 elections. Come January 1 of 2013, new and higher taxes, commonly referred to as “Taxmageddon,” begin to kick in and will escalate as the years pass.
Of the twenty-one new or higher taxes in Obamacare, Americans for Tax Reform lay out the top five worst taxes that will take hold of Americans at the beginning of 2013:
- The Obamacare Medical Device Tax – a $20 billion tax increase: Medical device manufacturers employ 409,000 people in 12,000 plants across the country. Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales
- The Obamacare “Special Needs Kids Tax” – a $13 billion tax increase
- The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income – a $123 billion tax increase: This is a new, 3.8 percentage point surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single).
- The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions – a $15.2 billion tax increase
- The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike — an $86.8 billion tax increase: The Medicare payroll tax is currently 2.9 percent on all wages and self-employment profits. Under this tax hike, wages and profits exceeding $200,000 ($250,000 in the case of married couples) will face a 3.8 percent rate instead.
Below is a complete list of the new taxes that will increase over the next six years, provided by the Heritage Foundation.
