With all due respect Okie, the President had nothing to do with your tax return as your taxes have not gone up.

No but I'm amazed that a bunch of informed adults don't know why their take home pay changed and 'feel' in must have been a tax hike by that evil anti-American who won the election. I guess to much fox news has rotted your brains.

BTW- your take home pay would have been effected the same why had mittens won.

This was my understanding as well. The new taxes will not be in effect (as far as returns) until you do your taxes for 2013.

Okie - compare you 2012 tax forms to your 2011 ones. Perhaps you missed something. It is easy to do.

It's the price we must pay for the fed. govt. to take splendid care of us. O care and the bureaucracy that comes with it is not cheap. See they have this budget they passed.............oh wait.

Look at it this way, you just helped someone on welfare buy a six pack of beer and some smokes. Consider it mandated charity.

I've been reading and some of this is based on the Alternative Minimum Tax. I'm still trying to get my head around the whole thing but basically Congress forgot to re-set the income that qualifies for AMT so it is now at $45,000 for married couples. There are exemptions as well that don't qualify if you pay AMT.

Perhaps someone more knowledgeble in tax law can help me figure this out.

No.

It was ORIGINALLY 45K. Back long ago. (1970's?) I still say AMT is set too low. It's designed to trap tax dodgers, not anyone making more than X. Limits are too low. Total tax % is too high. (I want to say it was the lower 20's for a while. I could be wrong.)

Thanks. I couldn't find anything current on the AMT and the more I read, the more confused I got. Apparently they finally got it fixed.

How can "taxes " not have gone up? First paycheck of the year showed a 2% increase in the amount deducted from your check to pay into SS.

This is just a start.
I bet there will be a VAT tax by year's end. Some extra scratch has to come in, to keep up with all the spending going on. We are just paying on the interest of our natl. debt.

In addition to the 2% increase in the payroll tax for SS back to its original 6% before Obungler and his band of thieves started messing with SS, there is another tax change. I am retired and my wife is still working. In the past few years we have used the HCRA, Health Care Reinbursement Account, where she is employed. Under the old rules for HCRA we could have up to $2500 each put into the account for a tolal of $5000 that would not be taxed. This year we are limited to a total of $2500 for the both of us. So that is another $800 in Federal income tax we have to pay and we also have to pay State income tax on the $2500. Feeling it in my shorts I am! Really feel sorry for a working parent with a spouse and 2-3 young kids that now can only set aside tax free the $2500 instead of the $5k.
