TAXES & PROPOSED CHANGES IN TAXES AFTER 2008 GENERAL ELECTION.
Time to consider your pocketbook:
CAPITAL GAINS TAX
0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). Mc Cain does not propose
any change in existing home sales income tax.
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
MCCAIN : 15% (no change)
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 earn ed
on taxes if Obama becomes 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.’

Under Obama, your taxes will more than double!
How does this affect you? No explanation needed. This is pretty straight
MCCAIN 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)
OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax
How does this affect you?
Many families have lost businesses, farms, 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 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!!!
THE FOREGOING IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF. . . IT SHOULD MAKE YOU
THINK BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR VOTE IN NOVEMBER. IF YOU DON’T OWN ANYTHING
NOW, CHANCES ARE YOU NEVER WILL BECAUSE TAXES ARE GOING TO GET IT ALL.
Please spread the word.
