Medical Excise Tax on Retail Receipts
This is an image of a sales receipt from Cabela's, a popular sporting goods store.
The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax that began on January 1st is supposed to be "hidden" from the consumer, but it's been brought to the public's attention by hunting and fishing store Cabela's who have refused to hide it and are showing it as a separate line item tax on their receipts, the email states. I did some research and found directly from the IRS's website information that PROVES this to be true and an accurate portrayal of something hidden in Obamacare that I was not aware of! Now being skeptical of this I went to the IRS website and found this!
Q1. What is the medical device excise tax? A1. Section 4191 of the Internal Revenue Code imposes an excise tax on the sale of certain medical devices by the manufacturer or importer of the device.
Q2. When does the tax go into effect? A2. The tax applies to sales of taxable medical devices after Dec. 31, 2012.
Q3. How much is the tax? A3. The tax is 2.3 percent of the sale price of the taxable medical device. See Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510, Excise Taxes, and Notice 2012-77 for additional information on the determination of sale price. IRS.gov Chapter Five http://www.irs.gov/publications/p510/ch05.html
So being more curious I clicked on "Chapter 5 of IRS Publication 510."
And what do I find under "MEDICAL DEVICES" under "MANUFACTURERS TAXES"?
The following discussion of manufacturers taxes applies to the tax on:
Sport fishing equipment;
Fishing rods and fishing poles;
Electric outboard motors;
Fishing tackle boxes;
Bows, quivers, broadheads, and points;
Gas guzzler automobiles; and
I think we have definitely been fooled, if we believe that the Affordable Care Act is all about health care. It truly does appear to be nothing more than a bill laden with a whole lot of taxes that we the people have yet to be aware of. Please pass this on . I am still incredulous that this can go on.Where is our press ? I guess its just like Nancy Pelosi said
.We have to pass it to see what is in it .What is next? What else is there we do not know about? I am sick to death about our government
all of them!!!!!! God help us .
How many times is this gonna be posted on FR?
I believe this was shown to be a billing system update error.
An arrowshaft and an electric outboard motor are medical devices... wow. Hey why not a woodchipper?
In before the thread is pulled or locked?
Pelosi and Congress: "TAXES for you, suckers. NOT US."
I hear it is going to be attached to House Bill 602P, levying a tax on each email sent, to fund the Post Office.
I did a search.no results.
If this subject is not important to you..i am sorry for taking up your time.
The search function at FR is indeed weak.
Best place to look is Snopes:
How many tines are you going to read it?
