The 2.3% Medical Excise Tax ....... WTF.. On Things that shouldn't be taxed!!!!
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 [link to www.irs.gov]

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 . .Where is our press ? I guess it’s 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 worked at a medical device manufacturing facility, they postponed raises for every employee in the building because of this 2.3% tax, I don't know if the company was using it as a reason to avoid giving raises, but I doubt that as 2.3% is a lot when you are budgeting everything down to the dollar, then out of nowhere 2.3% is taken out of that equation.

There were all sorts of things posted about it, every medical device manufacturer is trying to get rid of this tax because it is just a flat out new tax.

I've been "out of work" for 6 months now. Mostly doing consulting right now - working for myself. Money's not as good, but I also don't feel my soul getting sucked away either.

I've been actively looking for "work" these last 6 months, but it's brutal. Finally had an interview last week after a 3.5-month dry spell.
