TRUMP REPEALS OBAMACARE, Lowers Taxes simultaneously! submitted by RapeKathyGrifinAgain to whatever

LawStudent 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago

The way the individual mandate is altered strikes me as strange. Based on a quick look, only the amount of the penalty is changed (to the lesser of $0 or another amount). Obviously, any other major changes too the ACA come later. Still, that would mean all the other compliance is kept in place, so technically, it could still trigger other penalties for noncompliance. I might read more later. For anyone interested:

Don't tell this guy about death tax submitted by Broc_Lia to funny

Don't forget state level death taxes. And it is worth noting that the federal estate tax was not in effect in 2010.

Also, gift taxes. ~$14000 annual exclusion with the same lifetime exclusion as the estate tax.

(I doubt this really contributes to any conversation here; I just kinda wanted to talk about Estate anf Gift tax. Law school, right?)

I love you guys. Don't ever change. submitted by goatsandbros to funny

Julian Assange, Snowden and WikiLeaks have just proven that our government is corrupt. The EU is corrupt. ...now what do we do? submitted by 8_billion_eaters to whatever

Lol, because of the 16th Amendment?

But really, the voluntary reporting system is far superior to the alternative; imagine how costly and intrusive a world with government supervision of income reporting would be. (Consider the already phenomenal task of sorting through the voluntary reporting.)

#Draft our daughters submitted by pinkmagnet to funny

You had me worried, but as far as I can tell (in a quick reading and with hasty research), that provision didn't make it into law. I take it the Senate passed the bill, so the House would then have to approve it, but it doesn't look like that happened. See this article also for further proceedings (unrelated bills I believe).

*Not legal advice. Just tired law student thoughts.
