One Out Of Every Six U.S. Taxpayers Will Be Hit By A Tax Increase Averaging $3,900 This Year And Most Of Them Don’t Even Realize It

End of the American Dream
Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Did you know that there are two different sets of federal income tax rules in the United States?    It’s true.  Each year, most U.S. taxpayers either pay income tax under the system that most of us are familiar with or they pay the “Alternative Minimum Tax” – whichever amount ends up being greater.  For years, the U.S. Congress has passed one year “fixes” that have exempted millions of middle class American families from the Alternative Minimum Tax.  This has essentially been a huge tax cut each year for those millions of American families.  But this year, the Democrat-controlled Congress has not passed a “patch” for the Alternative Minimum Tax.  So now one out of every six U.S. taxpayers is going to be hit by the Alternative Minimum Tax.  The taxpayers most likely to be affected are married couples, very large families, home owners and taxpayers in states that have high state and local taxes.  The average tax increase that these taxpayers will be facing is going to be approximately $3,900 and most of them have no idea that it is coming.  At a time when an increasing number of families is barely getting by, a tax increase of this magnitude is simply going to crush the American Dream for literally millions of families.  Talk about a cruel surprise for tens of millions of Americans this upcoming tax season!

Would you be able to sit down and write a check for an extra four thousand dollars this upcoming April?

So where in the world did this insane alternate tax system come from anyway?

Well, back in 1969 the Alternative Minimum Tax was implemented with the intention of catching high income individuals who were avoiding paying taxes altogether by abusing certain loopholes.  But unfortunately, the Alternative Minimum Tax has not really been adjusted for inflation since that time, so now the Alternative Minimum Tax applies to millions of ordinary middle class American families.

Fortunately, the U.S. Congress has been passing a “fix” to this problem each year to avoid this problem, but so far this year the U.S. Congress has not acted.

So now we are on the verge of a complete and total mess.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, approximately 4.5 million American households paid the Alternative Minimum Tax in 2009.

If nothing changes, 27.2 million American households will pay it in 2010.

Are you starting to get the picture?

Do you know if the Alternative Minimum Tax will apply to you this year?

You might want to find out.

The temporary reprieve for middle class taxpayers that Congress passed last year expired at the end of 2009.

Therefore, every penny that you have earned in 2010 is subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax if it applies to you.

Of course Congress could still act and help all of us out by doing something about the Alternative Minimum Tax by the end of the year.

But considering the fact that this Congress is so incompetent that they wouldn’t be able to find their feet if they weren’t attached to the end of their legs, it is hard to be able to count on them to do anything correctly.

In fact, there is very little appetite in Congress right now to do anything that would add to the federal budget deficit in future years.

The truth is that simply eliminating the Alternative Minimum Tax without making equivalent cuts in U.S. government spending would add approximately $626 billion to the national debt over the next ten years.

So this Congress might just decide to let the middle class suffer.

In fact, all of us will be coughing up more taxes soon.  In all, there are more than 100 tax provisions that have either already expired or are about to expire.

2011 is already being dubbed “the year of the tax increase“, and unless something changes really, really quickly many of us are going to get some really nasty surprises early next year.

So are you ready to pay even more taxes?

Are you ready to be squeezed like a melon even though it is very likely that the U.S. government will never have a balanced budget ever again?

The U.S. government has piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world in our names, and in the end we are all going to pay for it in one way or another.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
