Accountants tell me they are still scratching their heads and still trying to figure out the taxes that are inside the Obamacare legislation. The reason the Obamacare law was upheld by the US Supreme Court was that it was as Chef Justice Roberts said, a “Tax Bill”. Congress has the authority to raise taxes. Unfortunately Chef Justice Roberts is right in that this bill does create new taxes and the accountants I have spoken with are concerned about how this is going to play out on their clients’ tax returns.
A part of the Obamacare legislation includes a specific tax on income earned on investments. It also creates tax penalties relating to medical insurance. The accountants are nervous about these new set of taxes and how they will adversely affect their clients.
