March 4, 2009 at 3:16 PM

I don't know how many of you are feeling overly taxed as it is but this is like puring salt into open wounds. All of these increases and new taxes proposed will be the burden of the working class family. All the while the Governor is giving a 10% increase to Welfare Benefits. Where's the justice? I say it's time for a tax payer revolt. 

I don't know about anyone else but my property taxes are staggering. I can't afford anymore. My family already goes without insurance as it is. This month I get to choose my 300 dollar gas bill or that of my daughters pain pills which are more than my gas bill. 12 pain pills are over 300 dollars. I can't take it anymore. Time for another Boston Tea Party. REVOLT REVOLT REVOLT!

 

 

 

With a tax on cable tv, your $80 dollar monthly bill will go up to $83.20.

A trip to the movies for a family of four will go from $29 dollars to $30.16 because now, it's taxed.

And for a men's and women's haircut, you'll spend around $50 dollars for both. With the new tax, add an extra two dollars.

If you buy $1.00 Pepsi from a vending machine once a week, it adds up to an extra 72 cents per month.

Virtually any trip to the DMV will be more expensive. The cost to renew your license will go from $50 to $62.50.

New licence plate was $15 and now will be $25.

Car registration will go from $44 to $55.

All the costs at state parks will go up from camping to golf.

If you fish, you may need a new marine fishing license. It will increase from $19 dollars.

Fish for trout or salmon, now you need a stamp that will cost an extra 10 bucks.

And when it comes time to do your taxes, if you submit on paper, not online, it will cost you an extra $10.

So, for the year, we added up all the things we mentioned above and it will cost $157.46 cents more in 2009.

There 137 new taxes or increased fees. Here are some of the highlights:

No more exemptions from sales tax on clothing and shoes under $110 dollars.

Haircuts, manicures, pedicures, massages, gym memberships will be subject to sales tax (4% state).

Movie tickets, concerts, sporting events, amusement parks, circus tickets, and other entertainment related expenses will be subject to sales tax (4% state).

Taxis, limos, buses, will be subject to sales tax (4% state).

Cable and satellite television will be subject to sales tax (4% state).

Store coupons will now be taxed, the same as manufacturer coupons. For example, if you have a manufacturer coupon, right now, you pay tax on the full amount, although you pay a discounted price. However, if you are at Wegmans and the product you want is cheaper with your Shopper's Club Card, you will now be taxed on the full amount, although you pay a discounted price.

Luxury goods will incur a 5% tax. Cars (over $60,000), jewelry and furs (over $20,000), Boats/yachts (over $200,000) and non-commercial aircrafts (over $500,000).

Sales tax will be charged on downloads of music and movies from the internet.

The tax on beer and wine will increase. Wine would increase from 18.9 cents per gallon to 51 cents per gallon. Beer tax would increase from 11 cents per gallon to 24 cents per gallon.

The tax on rental cars would go from 5% to 6%.

The average vehicle registration fee would go from $44 to $55.

To renew your driver's license (every 8 years) would go from $50 to $62.50.

The fee to reissue license plates would go from $15 to $25.

Establishes new marine fishing licence for $19.

Establishes a trout and salmon stamp for $10- you must have a stamp to fish for trout or salmon.

State parks fees would increase and this varies from park to park. However, the fee for an Empire Passport (unlimited entry to all parks) would increase from $59 to $65. Camping fees would increase from $13 to $15. Weekend Surcharges would go from $3 to $4. Cabin rentals would increase about 15%, golf prices would also increase about 15% and marina fees would increase about 25%.

If you are a New York State licensed notary public, barber, cosmetologist, real estate agent, the fee to take you license exam will increase.

The fee on car insurance policies will increase from $5 to $10.

A new 18% tax on soft drinks that are NOT diet.

A nickel deposit is added to beverages in plastic/glass bottles that currently do not have a deposit (like bottled water).

Assembly Minority Leader Jim Tedisco (R) released numbers saying Governor Paterson's 2009-10 Executive Budget will cost the average New York family an extra $3,875.48 annually.

    Perhaps not the direct action of the president, but State taxes DO pay for the federal government and Obama's new "budget" (if you want to call it a budget) will be charging the shit out of the states.

    you really have no common sense at all do you? nys was in deep shyt before Obama even did anything and Patterson had warned about this shyt since the summer. EDUCATE yourself first before you comment for heaven's sake.

    True, NY WAS in deep shit before Obama took office BUT our national debt has been climbing for quite some time, and Obama is making it worse.

    Common sense (dollars and cents that is) would tell you that!

    Perhaps it is you who needs to be educated before you comment.

    Again like i said considering all these actions were already in the works before Obama took office your comments mean nothing cause you just want to whine. Obama is a monster! He is a socialist! THE WORLD IS ENDING OMG!

    Hmmm I wonder if Mccain was in office and proposed the same shyt but a different color would you all have bitched then? Probably not, you all would have probably found something to hope on. Hell with it, it could have been anyone in office right now. What is so hard to understand that shyt will get ugly before it gets better. I know its hard to see that idea after the bs we had encounter from our last president but hey you all can always just FIRE Obama anyways.

    So instead of complaining and bsing on here you should be writing to your government and rounding up your peers and plan protests! And boycott taxes.. oh wait you are a SAHM nevermind you have your hands full already. It is easier to just jump on the pc and complain.

    I posted this so people could see how ludacris our state goverment is. To see the ridiculous taxes ,user fees and such that he is proposing. An 18% tax on all NON DIET drinks? Come on now? A new tax on haircuts,manis and pedis? Tell me this don't sound ridiculous to anyone else.

    The Governor was just here in Niagara Falls yesterday and told people who have been waiting for their tax returns it should only be a couple of weeks longer. They had to do cut backs within that department. That blew my mind. Mostly because he just gave many many people raises within his governmental offices. Yet he had to cut back in  the tax department.

    If we are as broke as he says we are, why are they doling out raises? Why are they buying new rugs at the cost of over 20,000, a new toaster for 200. The list of unecessary spening is endless. His reply to that was, the list was there before he took office. So what if it was there? It does not mean that you need those things.

    When asked about Welfare and why more than half of our State Bugdet goes to that he skirted the question and went to Fraud being weened out already.

    Our roads and bridges are in dire need of repair.  Where are the tax dollars we pay for upkeep to those very roads and bridges going?

    Grrrr... I am a new yorker, and I have been pissed about this for a while. Gov. Patterson sucks. His approval rating is at 26%, the lowest any gov has ever had in NY.
