Do the Hollyweirdo and IT “woke” know about this?
Back in March, Joe Biden had said: “If you elect me, your taxes are gonna be raised, not cut!”
Well, he meant it.
Robert Frank reports for CNBC, Oct. 19, 2020, that according to a study by the non-partisan Tax Foundation, high earners — those earning more than $400,000 a year — in California, New Jersey and New York, could face combined federal and state tax rates of 58% to more than 62% under Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan:
- 62.6% for Californians
- 58.2% for New Jersey
- 60+% for New York state
- 62+% for New York City.
If you include the contributions to the tax hikes by employers, which are often passed along to employees, the combined rates would rise even further — to over 65% in California, 62.9% in New Jersey and 64.7% in New York City. They could also jump higher if California and New York raise taxes on high earners, which some legislators have proposed to reduce multibillion-dollar budget gaps.
Tax Foundation’s Jared Walzcak said: “These rates would be the highest in about 3½ decades, and imposed on a broader tax base than was in place previously.”
Biden’s combined tax rates of more than 60% for top earners would be the highest in more than 30 years, and well above the rates under the Obama administration.
Currently, the top U.S. statutory tax rate is 37%; the effective rate (what taxpayers actually pay with help from their accountants) for top earners is 26.8%, according to the Tax Foundation.
Under Biden’s plan, the effective tax rate for the top 1% would increase from 26.8% to 39.8%, according to the Tax Policy Center. That means top earners in California and New York City would pay effective state and federal tax rates of around 53% — compared with the roughly 40% they pay in effective rates today.
