    2011 W-2 Tax Forms and Obamacare

    If this doesen't get to you, then check your pulse. You may be a flatline...

    Should you want to verify this, go to http://www.thomas.gov/, enter "HR 3590"
    in the search box and look for "CRS Summaries." This is what you'll find.

    Title IX Revenue Provisions—Subtitle A: Revenue Offset
    "(Sec. 9002) Requires employers to include in the W-2 form of each employee
    the aggregate cost of applicable employer-sponsored group health coverage
    that is excludable from the employee's gross income (excluding the value of
    contributions to flexible spending arrangements)."

    Starting in 2011—next year—the W-2 tax form sent by your employer will be
    increased to show the value of whatever health insurance you are provided.
    It doesn't matter if you're retired. Your gross income WILL go up by the amount
    of insurance your employer paid for. So you’ll be required to pay taxes on a larger
    sum of money that you actually received. Take the tax form you just finished for
    2009 and see what $15,000.00 or $20,000.00 additional gross income does to
    your tax debt. That's what you'll pay next year. For many it puts you into a
    much higher bracket. This is how the government is going to buy insurance for
    fifteen (15) percent that don't have insurance and it's only part of the tax increases,
    but it's not really a "tax increase" as such, it a redefinition of your taxable income.

    Also, go to Kiplinger's and read about the thirteen (13) tax changes for 2010 that
    could affect you.

    Why am I sending you this? The same reason I hope you forward this to every
    single person in your address book. People have the right to know the truth because
    an election is coming in November. So vote intelligently, based on your values.
    But also adjust your tax withholding, or increase your savings, so that you aren't
    surprised and put in a jam when your federal income taxes are due on April 15, 2012.

    Fight organized crime! Re-elect no one.

    God Bless America !!!!!!

    Might actually be a lot worse for some people who will be impacted by the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.

    Look on the bright side ... if this happens in 2011, the general populace will have a way to evaluate the true impact of Obama's policies BEFORE the election in 2012.

    The timing on that will be sucky since by 2011 the economy could be looking a bit better, but when people get hit with a higher tax bill that is likely to have a negative impact on recovery. How much so would depend on how robust the recovery is doing before an additional tax burden hits ... on just about every working person. Or during 2011, if withholding charts are adjusted, the recovery might not be as robust as take-home pay will be smaller?

    Not sure how the additional tax of health care insurance will compare to any credit that would be given to those who pay for their own insurance personally? Or will that credit (now given to the self-employed) disappear? (Those who paid for their own health insurance could take a Schedule A deduction for insurance provided it exceeded a certain %-age of their income).
