Obamacare, and its barrage of over $1 trillion new taxes, is creeping into your paycheck.
These taxes aren’t just affecting those who make over $250,000. The majority of these taxes are hurting the middle class.
While these "stealth taxes" were designed to be taxes on businesses, they're actually transferred directly to ordinary citizens.
"Many of those [hidden] taxes, especially those on hospitals, insurers and medical device manufacturers, will ultimately be passed on through higher health costs," said Michael Tanner, an expert on the healthcare law.
Starting in 2014, there are 13 new Obamacare taxes and regulations to deal with. These include the individual mandate, a higher “insurance industry fee” driving up premiums, and a new 3.5% monthly fee on policy premiums purchased on the federal exchange.
Add it all up, and some analysts estimate Obamacare will cost the average American nearly $6,000 extra in 2014.
What’s more, taxpayers filing taxes in 2014 will need to be ready to deal with all the Obamacare taxes that already went into effect last year.
