Hmm, nice use of green font, could use some graphs, maybe an animated GIF to make it more approachable, although "This will make your day" is a solid hook. What else... Oh, and some footnotes. -m
If you read this info on the Proposed Tax changes after the Election & do not get totally TICKED OFF Then GOD help us all We better wake up folks.
This will make your day!
Spread the word.....
This is something you should be
aware of so you don't get blind-sided.
This is really going to catch a lot
of families off guard. It should
make you worry.
Proposed changes in taxes after 2008 General election:
CAPITAL GAINS TAX
0% on home sales up to $500,000
per home (couples) McCain does not
propose any change in existing
home sales income tax.
28% on profit from ALL home sales
How does this affect you?
If you sell your home and make a profit, you
will pay 28% of your gain on taxes.
If you are heading toward retirement
and would like to down-size your
home or move into a retirement
community, 28% of the money you
make from your home will go to taxes. This
proposal will adversely affect the
elderly who are counting on the income
from their homes as part of their retirement income.
MCCAIN 15% (no change)
How will this affect you?
If you have any money invested in stock
market, IRA, mutual funds,
college funds, life insurance, retirement
accounts, or anything that pays
or reinvests dividends, you will now
be paying nearly 40% of the money
earned on taxes if Obama become president.
The experts predict that 'higher
tax rates on dividends and capital gains
would crash the stock market yet
do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.

OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax
How does this affect you? Many families
