Taxes

Posted by olemike on 09/20/2010

I would like my liberal friends to tell me what is the maximum tax percentage anyone (rich or poor) should have to give to the government. Is there any level at which they would not want more? Already, if you consider, federal, state, sales, real estate, estate, etc. the highest earners already pay well over 50% of their taxable income. How much is enough?
I personally think it is almost immoral that a huge number of Americans think it is okay for someone else to pay the tab. Have we lost all of our self-respect and self-confidence that we can take care of ourselves?

    Watch for this AFTER November elections; remember
    this BEFORE you VOTE in case you think government is looking out for your best interest.

    1% tax on all bank transactions HR 4646

    This government just cannot think of enough ways to hurt the American people!This Bill must die FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW!

    1% tax on all bank transactions HR 4646 – ANOTHER NEW TAX SLIPPED IN WHILE WE WERE ASLEEP.

    Checked this on snopes, it’s true! Check out HR 4646. (see below copied from Snopes)

    President Obama’s finance team is recommending a one percent (1%) transaction fee (TAX). Obama’s plan is to sneak it in after the November
    elections to keep it under the radar.

    This is a 1% tax on all transactions at any financial institution – banks, credit unions, savings and loans, etc. Any deposit you make, or even a transfer within your account, will have a 1% tax charged.

    ~If your paycheck or your social security or whatever is direct deposit, it will get a 1% tax charged for the transaction.

    ~If your paycheck is $1000, then you will pay $10 just for the privilege of depositing your paycheck in your bank. Even if you hand carry your paycheck or any check into your bank for a deposit, 1% tax will be charged.
    ~You receive a $5,000 stock dividend from your broker, the government takes $50 just to allow you to deposit that check in the bank.

    ~If you take $1,000 cash to deposit at your bank, 1% tax will be charged.

    Mind you, this is from the man who promised that, if you make under $250,000 per year, you will not see one penny of new tax. Keep your eyes and ears open, you will be amazed at what you learn about this under-the-table moves to increase the number of ways you are taxed.

    ~Oh, and by the way, you receive a refund from the IRS next year and you have it direct deposited or you walk in to deposit that check, you guessed it. You will pay a 1% charge of that money just for putting it in your bank. Remember,
    any money, cash, check or whatever, no matter where it came from, you will pay a 1% fee if you put it in the bank.

    Some will say, oh well, it’s just 1%. Are you kidding me? It’s a 1% tax increase across the board. Remember, once the tax is there, they can also raise it at will. And if anyone protests, they will just say, “oh,that’s not really a tax, it’s a user fee”! Think this is no big deal? Go back and look at the transactions you
    made from last year’s banking statements. Then add the total of all those transactions and deduct 1%.

    Still think it’s no big deal???
