Interesting Data Just Received on Taxes

October 13, 2008


Contributed by a Concerned American

Comparing the facts about Obama's and McCain's tax plans is something you should do so that you are not blind-sided. This is really going to catch a lot of families off guard. It should make you worry about an Obama presidency.

Proposed changes in taxes after 2008 General election:

CAPITAL GAINS TAX


MCCAIN

0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.

OBAMA
28% on profit from ALL home sales

How does this affect you? If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.

DIVIDEND TAX


MCCAIN 15% (no change)


OBAMA 39.6%

How will this affect you? If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama become president. The experts predict that 'higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.

INCOME TAX


 MCCAIN (no changes)

 Single making 30K - tax $4,500
 Single making 50K - tax $12,500
 Single making 75K - tax $18,750
 Married making 60K- tax $9,000
 Married making 75K - tax $18,750
 Married making 125K - tax $31,250

 OBAMA
 (reversion to pre-Bush tax cuts)
 Single making 30K - tax $8,400
 Single making 50K - tax $14,000
 Single making 75K - tax $23,250
 Married making 60K - tax $16,800
 Married making 75K - tax $21,000
 Married making 125K - tax $38,750

 Under Obama your taxes will more than double! How does this affect you? No explanation needed. This is pretty straight forward.

INHERITANCE TAX


MCCAIN
0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax

How does this affect you? Many families have lost businesses, farms and ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will not only lose them to these taxes.


NEW TAXES BEING PROPOSED BY OBAMA


 * New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet


 * New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already)


 * New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity)


 * New taxes on retirement accounts and last but not least....

 * New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!
