DID YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS MTA TAX FOR SELF EMPLOYED?????????????

By
Real Estate Agent with ERA Team IV Homes

SEEMS NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT THIS TAX THAT IS BEING IMPOSED ON NY SELF EMPLOYED!!!!!    JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS YESTERDAY AND EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE IN THE DARK ABOUT THIS.  APPARENTLY OUR GREAT LAW MAKERS HAVE PASSED THIS TAX TO HELP BAIL OUT THE MTA.   MY QUESTION IS "WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO RIDE THE TRAIN TO NYC?"  I DON'T EVEN RIDE THE TRAIN!!!!!  THIS TAX WILL BE .34% OF YOUR INCOME AND THE FIRST BILL IS DUE ON NOVEMBER 2, 2009, ISN'T THAT NICE!  NOW, IF YOU CAN'T PAY THE BILL YOU WILL HAVE THE SAME FINES & PENALTIES AS YOU WOULD FOR YOUR PERSONAL INCOME TAX!    WHAT IN THE WORLD IS OUR GOVERNMENT THINKING, WE ARE TAXED TO DEATH IN NY AS IT IS!!!!    THAT'S WHY SO MANY PEOPLE ARE LEAVING NY,  THE TAXES ARE RIDICULOUS.  

WAKE UP NEW YORK - TAX THOSE WHO RIDE THE TRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess this is a better place than any to continue a petition we have going on Long Island regarding the MTA tax.   So, if you feel that small businesses and self employed individuals are keeping this economy going and that the State is trying to kill us with these non stop increases in taxes, please make a statement here.  THANK YOU NEW YORK!
