On January 1, regardless of the outcome of fiscal cliff negotiations, Americans will be hit with a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike. Obamacare contains twenty new or higher taxes.
Major Obamacare taxes taking effect on January 1 are as follows:
The Obamacare Medical Device Tax: Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales for manufacturers.
The Obamacare Flex Account Tax: The 30-35 million Americans who use a pre-tax Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs will face a new government cap of $2500.
