Obama Care has within it numerous different taxes. However everyone one is not affected the same. Let's take a look at how Obama Care's taxes affect certain income groups.
Obama Care (Affordable Health care Act) Taxes for High Earners and Large Businesses
Most of the new taxes are on what on so called high end earners. This group includes anyone making over $200,000 and families that making over $250,000. If you own a business with over 50 full-time equivalent employees making over $250,000 you are included in this group. Also if you are in an industry that profits from healthcare you are also included in this group. Essentially who will see gains under Obama Care are required to put money back in the program via taxes.
FACT: Tax increases generally affect single filers with an adjusted gross income (AGI) above $200,000 and married couples filing jointly above $250,000. Some of the tax increases don't kick in until single AGI hits $400,000 and married filing jointly AGI hits $450,000.
