The new 3.8% Medicare Tax


You may have heard about a new ‘medicare tax’ which was enacted on March 23, 2010.  Beginning January 1, 2013, a new 3.8% tax on some investment income will take effect. Since this new tax will affect some real estate transactions, I’d like to summarize it for you.

The new tax was passed by Congress with the intent of generating more than $210 billion (over 10 years), representing more than half of the total new expenditures in the health care reform package.  Its primary function is to help fund President Barack Obama’s health care and Medicare overhaul plans.

This tax WILL NOT be imposed on all real estate transactions, a common misconception. Rather, when the legislation becomes effective in 2013, it may impose a 3.8% tax on some (but not all) income from interest, dividends, rents (less expenses) and capital gains (less capital losses). The tax will fall only on individuals with an adjusted gross income (AGI) above $200,000 and couples filing a joint return with more than $250,000 AGI.

It’s important to remember that the new tax applies to the LESSER of either:

1)     Investment income amount, or

2)     Excess of AGI over the $200,000 or $250,000 amount
It’s a complicated tax, so please refer to your tax specialist to find out how it will affect your personal situation.

Decide to be a good person who will not be evil.
Inherent in the offer of clone hosting is a clue:::"Earn" by hurting others. This violates this vow, causing people to incurr evil, and the clue you need to avoid it. Sadly, as young people too many are still corrupted, still unenlightened and make the mistake when offered.
Only innocent pure children ascend into heaven, while evil is relegated to entering clone hosting, where they are reincarnated as lesser life forms. One day the Christian Rapture will be used as a "consolation prize", and usher in the era of compensation according to the Bible:::1000 years with Jesus on Earth.
Everlasting life with Jesus, but only for true believers:::Placement to suffer on the next Planet Earth punishment for worshipping a false god.

The antients used Christinaity to initiate the "Beginnning of The End". Along the way they used it to initiate other tools which they will use to further mankind into decay and towards the Apoocalypse:::USA, "democracy", capitalism/corporations.
Of the tools they have used, religious, political, economic, social is by far the most damaging and seems reserved for those who have experienced each tactic:::
The god's social tool promoted moral decay, whether sexual, behavioral, professional, etc. It created an enviornment where indecency is the norm.

Breaking my ankle at the Summitt was shamelessly gratuitous. The only purpose was to slow me down as I got older, ensuring I didn't continue hiking or being active.
And they knew they were going to parlay kidney failure into cardiac cmplications, effectively doing the same.
People don't believe me when I say the gods are monsters, saying it is specific to my life. We're all being set up for ugly, and Republican debt spending will lead to bankrupcy and the use of all these semi-automatic guns people are hoarding at these gun shows.
The gods are ordering all proceedings still. If one day this changes it hasn't yet. Their vested interest is still very high.
The gods chose the Eutruscans to destroy Planet Earth and imparted their value system because these were the values the Antients would inflict on us when the chips were on the table. Ironically they are the big gangsters in the sky.

The gods may share some values of the conservatives (mostly good, a little evil), with the exception of capitalism, warmongering and environmental degredation, but they also share in the economic degredation of the conservatives which will bring the United States to bankrupcy and anarchy. It initiated with Ronald Reagan taking the National Debt from $1T to $6T.
And me, the hundred billion dollar man, will have to meekly ask for a nice apartment (conservative timeshare dream).
As long as the gods have this vested interest of the Situation they are calling the shots. They order all proceedings to ensure they get what they want. This is not to say they will transistion when it is over, but I suspect this final absolution of culpability is necessary for them to completely wash their hands of Earth in preparation for the Apocalypse.

Something godly about dork, innocent and pure, unlike the status quo. Kinda like the Simspsons episode when Rod and Todd go back to Germany and become normal, because everyone in the USA are the freaks. This was a valuable clue.
