Picture of the day

A section of the floor sheathing was repaired with a hollow core door. Interesting repair.

Recently received an email which stated:

"Did you know that
if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?
That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It's in
the health care bill and goes into effect in 2013. Why 2013? Could it
be to come to light AFTER the 2012 elections? So, this is "change you
can believe in"? Under the new health care bill all real estate
transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax.
If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is
set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes.
Does this make your November and 2012 vote more important? Oh, you
weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill? Guess what, you aren't
alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware
of it either"

After reading your reaction of surprise may be similar to mine. Looking into further discovered the truth behind it.

The truth is that only a tiny percentage of home sellers will pay the tax. First of all, only those with incomes over $200,000 a year ($250,000 for married couples filing jointly) will be subject to it. And even for those who have such high incomes, the tax still won’t apply to the first $250,000 on profits from the sale of a personal residence — or to the first $500,000 in the case of a married couple selling their home.
