Obamacare “Hidden 2.3%” Medical Excise Tax Began On January 1st For Sport Fishing Equipment


This was in my email this morning. Bet you did not know this!

Hooray for Cabela’s

YA GOTTA READ THIS!! -ITS A MUST!
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.

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 Obama care 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

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, broad heads, and points;

Arrow shafts;

Coal;

Taxable tires;

Gas guzzler automobiles; and

Vaccines.

IRS.gov 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 it’s just like Nancy Pelosi (the bitch) said…….We have to pass it to see what is in it. What is next? What else is there we do not know about? God help us .
