Sandy-Ravaged New Jersey Families Face $6,933 Tax Hike in Fiscal Cliff Stalemate

Families in Hurricane Sandy-ravaged New Jersey will face the highest tax increase as a percentage of their income – 6.82%  or about $6,933 more in taxes — if Congress does not reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff tax issues during the lame-duck session, according to an analysis by the Tax Foundation.

In its study of how the fiscal cliff would affect typical families in each state, the Tax Foundation reports that if the numerous tax provisions that are due to expire on Dec. 31 are not changed, a four-person family in New Jersey with a median income of $101,682 will see its taxes go up at a rate 6.82 percent of its income, which translates into about $6,933.

The tax issues in question are the expiration of the Bush tax rates, which also include the elimination of the 10 percent tax bracket and the reduced deduction for married filers; ending the 2 percent cut to employee-side Social Security taxes; and the Alternative Minimum Tax.

Maryland was ranked second by the Tax Foundation because a four-person family there, with a median income of $106,707, would see its taxes go up 6.74 percent as a percentage of income, or about $7,194.

Connecticut, ranked third, would see taxes for a family of four go up by 6.62 percent, or $6,653.

All five states with the top tax increases are “blue states,” which President Obama won in the 2012 presidential election. But so are four out of the bottom five states with the exception of Kansas.

    People stupid enough to vote for 0bama really are too stupid to make their own decisions. So they are kind of justified in their belief that government should control every aspect of their lives. There is no hope for them.

    I’d normally say screw em, they voted for Obama they can take the coming scalping but I do think that the majority of the ones that take the biggest haircut will be those that voted for Romney. I think. It would be interesting to see a breakdown by affiliation and salary. Hey, maybe it’s time for a poll tax, God knows we could use one up here in the great white north :)

    Yeah! We’re number 3 here in Connecticut!

    Hey, wait a minute, that’s not good is it?

    Good thing Mrs Galt and I are peasants and won’t get hit too hard.

    Here’s a link to a story from Doug Ross about mentally challenged people voting for Obama, not the run of the mill retarded Obama voters but real honest to goodness voters who didn’t know any better.

    When I worked at the Polls this November, we had 5 obviously retarded people come in with “caregivers” and vote. As long as they had some form of I D, we had to let em. Ain’t Democracy great?

    And now this public service announcement about Govenor Chris Christie.. For $90 you could cloth a child, for $90 you could help fight cancer, or you could feed Govenor Chris Christy for a whole day, for just $90 dollars. working with homeless people can make you pretty hungry, and since there aren’t enough food trucks to go around here, his food has to be shipped in. your 90 dollars will help keep him fat and sassy so he can set a good example for all those people who are homeless

    @Dan Ryan Galt:

    A few elections ago, there was a man with Downs Syndrome at our polling place. He was yelling out, “Who’s Jerry Brown?” and a poll worker said gently that Jerry Brown was running for governor. The handicapped man then yelled out, “I’m voting for Jerry Brown!” It was the first time I realized that there was a whole ‘nother segment of the population that could easily be manipulated. See what we’re up against?

    But most NJians would gladly pay more in taxes just because they saw Barky looking all “preezidential” leading Chrissy around the storm damage like his pet pot-bellied piggy.

    Suppose there’ll be any fallout onto Barry’s head groupie Christie from his Sandy-devastated constituents? He does claim to be a “Republican”.
