2009 NYS Tax Increases.

How many times can we be taxed on the same dol­lar and how long are we going to put up with this high­way robbery?

This infor­ma­tion is taken from a report given at the New York State Sen­ate Repub­li­can Con­fer­ence. Source:SFY 2009-10 Enacted Bud­get; Analy­sis of Sen­ate and Assem­bly Demo­c­rat Bud­get Res­o­lu­tions; and A Bet­ter Choice Bud­get Cam­paign — Rev­enue Rais­ing Options.

LIST of TAX INCREASES is Below. It totals $18.7 bil­lion dol­lars of increases.

Who do you think ends up pay­ing all that?

If they tax big busi­ness, do you think Big Busi­ness is going to pass that extra cost to them on to their cus­tomers? Of Course.

And remem­ber, if you are a W2 worker, you pay all these taxes with your AFTER tax income.

These are just the newly proposed/enacted taxes for New York State for one year. So many want the gov­ern­ment to pay for every­thing but, who is really pay­ing? Just because some­thing is given any one of the fol­low­ing names or any other name for exam­ple, does not mean that it is not an out­right TAX:


















remove cap,

post­pone reduction,

pos­tone elimination,

elim­i­nate rebate,

limit deduc­tions,

repeal tax credits.

deferred tax

Look below at all the new ways foods and vehi­cles are being taxed. Who knows what other taxes are already in place! Please think about WHO ENDS UP PAYING ALL OF THE TAX INCREASES listed below?

The fol­low­ing 125 Taxes are just one states enacted/proposed changes to increase their tax laws in one year, 2009.

I have cat­e­go­rized sim­i­lar taxes into like cat­e­gories as the orig­i­nal doc­u­ment had them spread out so it was less rec­og­niz­able just how many taxes were being charged for the same thing.

The actual Tax # has been left as if in the orig­i­nal order it was presented.

Taxes with a ‘P’ were PROPOSED in 2009 for 2010 so If They Have Not Yet Been Enacted, Then I Am CERTAIN They WILL Be In The Future.


Tax 1.   Per­sonal Income Tax. A W2 wage earner is taxed before they even see their pay check, then on top of all that, every after-tax dol­lar that they spend is taxed again, mul­ti­ple times.

Tax 2.   Elim­i­nate STAR Prop­erty Tax Rebate Cheques. It was a bat­tle to get this in the first place.

Tax 25.  Increase Real Prop­erty Trans­fer Fee. Real Prop­erty includes all lands, build­ings, fix­tures, improve­ments, improve­ments on leased land and cabin trail­ers and mobile homes not reg­is­tered for high­way use but uti­lized like a build­ing.  Real prop­erty also includes mines, min­er­als, quar­ries, min­eral springs and wells, oil and gas wells, over­rid­ing roy­alty inter­ests, and pro­duc­tion pay­ments with respect to oil or gas leases.  Lastly all real prop­erty includes all priv­i­leges per­tain­ing to the real prop­erty. Do you think tax­ing any of these Real Prop­erty assets might affect you? If it is going to cost more for the oil and gas com­pa­nies to pro­duce their oil and gas, who do they pass those extra taxes onto? YOU.

Tax 44.  Estab­lish Tax Pre­parer Fee. Won­der­ful. Not only are we robbed in the form of taxes, but the tax laws are made so com­pli­cated (so they can be eas­ily mis­con­trived) but we now have to pay a tax for hav­ing to use some­one else to do our taxes for us. And if they hap­pen to make a mis­take, we are still the one’s tak­ing all the risk because we are held respon­si­ble even though we went to the tax pre­parer because we don’t know or under­stand all the com­plex tax­a­tion laws.

Tax 11.  Limit Item­ized Deduc­tions for High Income Earn­ers. Because the dol­lar is worth less, we have to earn more dol­lars to try to be able to stay at the same qual­ity of life, but, by hav­ing to earn more dol­lars, even though they are worth less, we are in a higher tax bracket and so more peo­ple are going to be in the High Income Earn­ers tax bracket, even though they are not really earn­ing any more. The num­ber of pieces of paper with $1 writ­ten on it may be more but we are really earn­ing less because each dol­lar buys less and the gov­ern­ment takes more because we earned more pieces of paper, and so more peo­ple are con­sid­ered High Income Earn­ers and so will be taxed in a higher bracket, even though they are worse off than before.

P Tax 95.  Add New $1M bracket to the Per­sonal Income tax. Same holds true for this new Tax Bracket. Because the dol­lar is worth less, we have to earn more dol­lars to try to be able to stay at the same qual­ity of life, but, by hav­ing to earn more dol­lars, because they are worth less, we are in a higher tax bracket and so more peo­ple are going to be in the new $1M per­sonal income tax bracket, even though they are not really earn­ing any more. The num­ber of pieces of paper with $1 writ­ten on it may be more but they are really earn­ing less because each dol­lar buys less and the gov­ern­ment takes more because we earned  more pieces of paper, and so are in a higher tax bracket but our lifestyle has been reduced.



Tax 3.   MTA Region Pay­out tax. MTA Long Island Rail Road and MTA Metro-North.

Tax 8.    MTA Reg­is­tra­tion Sur­charge.

Tax 16.  MTA Taxi-cab Sur­charge of 50 cents.

Tax 21.  MTA Auto Rental 5% Sur­charge. I expe­ri­enced this just last week, while I was hav­ing the brakes fixed on my car.

Tax 26.  MTA License and Learn­ers Per­mit Sur­charge.

Tax 43.  Taxi and Bus Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increases — 1 year. How many times can we be taxed? That is the game those in charge of the gov­ern­ment are play­ing. When are we going to have had enough and stop this ludi­crous steal­ing of our wealth?


Tax 17. Increase Sur­charge on Auto Insur­ance.

Tax 18.  Pas­sen­ger Vehi­cle Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increases — aver­age 2 years.

Tax 20.  Dri­ver License Renewal Increase of 25% (8 years). It will be less notice­able by increas­ing it over a period of time rather than all at once.

Tax 23.  Impose Sales Tax on Transportation-Related Activ­i­ties. I sup­pose that means any motor­ized toy one has the plea­sure of using in their spare time like four-wheelers, jet-skis, boat­ing etc.

Tax 30.  Increase Scofflaw Ter­mi­na­tion Fee. The scofflaw ter­mi­na­tion fee is the fee required to end a sus­pen­sion result­ing from a fail­ure to answer a ticket or pay a fine.

Tax 47.  Motor Vehi­cle Re-Registration Fee Increases.

Tax 48.  Increase Driver’s License Sus­pen­sion Ter­mi­na­tion Fee.

Tax 67.  Increase Driver’s License Rein­state­ment Fee.

Tax 31.  Photo Doc­u­ment Motor Vehi­cle License Fee Increase.

Tax 34.  Remove Cap on Dept of Motor Vehi­cle Sur­charges.

Tax 90.  Post­pone sched­uled reduc­tion of DMV search fee from 2010 to 2015.

Tax 91.  Post­pone sched­uled reduc­tion of DMV Appli­ca­tion and Reg­is­tra­tion fees for dealer or trans­porter from 2010 to 2016.

Tax 92.  Post­pone the elim­i­na­tion of the DMV Photo Image fee from 2010 to 2015.

Tax 93.  Increase in License Plate Re-issuance Fee.

Tax 35.  Auto Rental Tax. We felt this recently when we rented a car while our cars brakes were being re-done.

Tax 36.  Trailer Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increases. My hus­band uses a trailer for his remod­el­ing busi­ness. Do they mean the semi trailers?

Tax 42.  High­way Use Tax Fee Increase. Who dri­ves on a high­way? We do. The trucks deliv­er­ing all the foods and goods to the dif­fer­ent loca­tions for us to pur­chase do. Do you think the price of these goods will increase because the cost of deliv­ery will go up? Who pays in the end? We do.

Tax 46.  Tax In-state Use of Out-of-State Vehi­cles.

Tax 51.  Cus­tom Vehi­cle Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increase — 2 year If you have enough money to cus­tomize your vehi­cle, you have enough money to share it with Uncle Sam, right!!!

Tax 70.  Fee for Motor Vehi­cle — MV-278 Cer­tifi­cate (Pre-licensing Course).

Tax 58.  Motor­boat Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increases — 3 years. OK, so now there is a Sales Tax on Transportation-Related Activ­i­ties, the Boat Reg­is­tra­tion Fee itself and the Trailer car­ry­ing the boat. Also, the use of the road to get the boat the water, any­thing else? Don’t for­get the fish you catch must be taxed as well, because you need a license to be able to fish. Don’t for­get also the tax you already paid for the pur­chase of the boat and the fish­ing gear and fuel to drive the boat and all that is after you paid your income tax. How much tax does one pay for a relax­ing day of fish­ing? The best answer is TOO much. Now add camp­ing and the increase in Park Fees and you might as well just hand over your wallet.

Tax 79.  All Ter­rain Vehi­cle (ATV) Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increase.

Tax 81.  Motor­cy­cle Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increases.


Tax 24.  Com­mer­cial Motor Vehi­cle Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increase per 500 lbs. I sup­pose my husband’s busi­ness util­ity truck falls into this cat­e­gory or the trucks that carry our foods and goods are included in this.

Tax 74.  Heavy Vehi­cle Reg­is­tra­tion Fee Increases — per­cent of reg­is­tra­tion Fee.

Tax 6.   Tax on Fam­ily and Indi­vid­ual Health Insur­ance Poli­cies (Enacted in DRP). Hmm. I won­der why they (the gov­ern­ment) are going to force every per­son to be health insured in a sys­tem that only pro­duces sick­ness. Do you really think it is because they want to look after everyone’s health? Of course not, it is so we can all be taxed more.

Tax 9.    Shift Healthy New York Direct Pay Stop Loss to Insur­ance Assess­ment (Enacted in (DRP).

Tax 10. Hos­pi­tal Assess­ment Tax.

Tax 12.  Hos­pi­tal Sur­charge Tax. The hos­pi­tals don’t pay for this, we end up pay­ing for this. If you think your health insur­ance pays for it, then who pays for the health insur­ance? It comes out of your pocket in the form of less wages.

P Tax 103.  Increase Hos­pi­tal Assessment.

Tax 13.  Health Insur­ance Tax.

Tax 27.  Home Care Assess­ment (Tax).

P Tax 120.  Increase Assess­ment on Home Care Ser­vices

Tax 60.   Estab­lish New Wet­lands Per­mit Fees.

Tax 61.   Parks Camp­ing Fee Increases. Gosh, if you want to take your boat with you and do some fish­ing while camp­ing, how much more tax will that be?

Tax 72.  Parks Marina Fee Increases.

Tax 71.  Parks Empire Pass­ports Fee Increases.

Tax 83.  Increase Feed Ton­nage Fees. Another tax related to food. Costs increase to feed the ani­mals that become food or that pro­duce food, like milk for all the dairy products.

Tax 53.  Dou­ble Food Proces­sor Licens­ing Fees — Bien­nial Fee. Increase in food costs for­warded on to us again. We have increase in pes­ti­cides, using a road, fuel, water, pro­cess­ing of .… how many more times will they increase the cost of our food?

Tax 40.  Increase Pes­ti­cide Fees. OK, so rather than stop allow­ing our food to be poi­soned by pes­ti­cides, increas­ing the tax on the actual pes­ti­cide actu­ally increases the cost to grow the food, which in turn increases the price we pay for our fresh fruit and veg­eta­bles that have been poi­soned by the pes­ti­cides that are allowed due to the tax rev­enues col­lected, not from the pro­duc­ers of the pes­ti­cides, but from US, you and I.

Tax 14.  Enhanced “Bot­tle Bill” — bottle deposits.

P Tax 96.  New Tax on Soda.

P Tax 100.  Plas­tic Bag Tax.

P Tax 111.  Repeal Sales Tax Exemp­tion for Vend­ing Machines. O.K., now I am not into drink­ing soda at all, how­ever, if we just take the 4 new taxes above, we can see that if one pur­chases a soda out of a vend­ing machine, they will, on top of the taxes that were already in place before 2009, also pay more tax for the bot­tle,  the actual soda, and for the use of the vend­ing machine. But, if the soda was bought in a gro­cery store instead of a vend­ing machine, one will pay extra tax for the plas­tic bag. Now look over the trans­porta­tion added taxes and add those into the sce­nario, oh, and if this all hap­pened while away camp­ing? Get the pic­ture. This is just one item pur­chased.


Tax 29.  Increase Beer/Wine Tax. Why did pro­hi­bi­tion end? So taxes could be col­lected. Not because it is everyone’s right to put into their bod­ies what ever they choose. So many peo­ple where mak­ing it ille­gally they were miss­ing the tax­ing oppor­tu­nity big time.

Tax 69.  Air Con­t­a­m­i­na­tion Fees.

Tax 75.  Increase State Pol­lu­tant Dis­charge Elim­i­na­tion Sys­tem (SPDES) Fees. They couldn’t just not allow the pol­lu­tion, that would not be enough extra fees/taxes that way I sup­pose.

Tax 86.  Water With­drawal Report­ing Fee.

Tax 50.  Increase Nuclear Power Plant Fee. Hope­fully, see­ing as they have allowed these to be built, the fee would be only to pay for the improve­ment of the plant to increase safety in case of dis­as­ter. But I bet not.

P Tax 123.  Reduce Max­i­mum Amounts of QETC and Bio­fuel Credit Claims.

P Tax 119.  Tax Out-of-State Trusts of New York Res­i­dents.

Before we buy any food, how many tax dol­lars has the gov­ern­ment earned, whoops sorry, taken, before it gets to your plate?

“I could end the deficit in 5 min­utes. You just pass a law that says that any­time there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sit­ting mem­bers of Con­gress are inel­i­gi­ble for re-election.” — Warren Buffett

I would go one step fur­ther and sug­gest we half the num­ber sen­a­tors and other gov­ern­ment offi­cials over a period of ten years, espe­cially if taxes are not reduced and they keep cre­at­ing more and more ways to hide how they tax us.

We are pay­ing them all to sit around fig­ur­ing out as many ways as pos­si­ble  to tax us with as much obscu­rity as pos­si­ble. How LUDICROUS is that?

“It is morally tragic when­ever a citizen’s only choice is between two wrong­do­ers — by Gary D. Barnett

I con­sider vot­ing today only as an avenue that allows one group to legally plun­der another, and a process that fully legit­imizes a cor­rupt polit­i­cal sys­tem. Those who vote are obvi­ously sup­port­ive of the polit­i­cal process and the polit­i­cal actions taken in this coun­try, and are respon­si­ble for those they elect, and for what they do in office. This is why I think the old adage that “those who do not vote have no right to com­plain” is back­ward. Those who vote to allow the polit­i­cal car­nage are the ones respon­si­ble for the prob­lems, while those who don’t vote have noth­ing to do with elect­ing crim­i­nal politi­cians. There­fore not vot­ing is in and of itself a polit­i­cal state­ment denounc­ing the sys­tem, while vot­ing shows favor of that same nefar­i­ous sys­tem. http://infinitebanking.org/BankNotes/Banknotes.pdf   At least if you are going to vote, vote for some­one who agrees our taxes are way too high and whose goal is to get rid of the IRS.
Some peo­ple keep say­ing that 50% of the coun­try don’t pay any tax. I don’t know how one can get away with not pay­ing any tax in this country.
1)  If you are a W2 wage earner, you are given your pay after the tax has been taken out.
2)  If you buy food, you pay for all the taxes that were paid in the pro­duc­ing and deliv­ery of that food. Just think about how many peo­ple and how many prod­ucts in the food have been taxed before you buy the fin­ished prod­uct to eat.  The cost of all that is in the final prod­uct you are pay­ing for.
3)  If you buy clothes, you pay tax. Was any tax paid by the mak­ers of the fiber used to make the thread? Was any tax paid on the machines or peo­ple that turn that fiber into thread? How many peo­ple, machines, vehi­cles, fuels, were needed to cre­ate each piece of cloth­ing, all of which were taxed before you  were taxed when you pur­chased it? Was any­thing imported? There is also the import tax.
4)  If you pay rent on the place where you live, you pay tax. Your rent cov­ers the prop­erty taxes of the owner. Each mate­r­ial used to build the house was taxed. Each per­son involved in any way of man­u­fac­tur­ing mate­ri­als, deliv­er­ing mate­ri­als, mak­ing plans for the struc­ture, build­ing the struc­ture, the town fees etc. were all taxed before the renter pays rent that cover the prop­erty and school taxes.
5)  If you take pub­lic trans­porta­tion or drive a vehi­cle you are pay­ing mul­ti­ple taxes. Fuel, vehi­cle man­u­fac­tur­ing, min­ing the met­als or cre­at­ing the plas­tics etc. How many peo­ple once again have paid taxes from their wages for all the dif­fer­ent processes and jobs. It is end­less, and the gov­ern­ment wants more????
6)  If you own a phone, cell or land-line, you are pay­ing taxes. Look at all the parts needed to make a cell phone? Look at all the ser­vices needed to be pro­vided so you can com­mu­ni­cate through the cell phone, or reg­u­lar phone.
There is not one thing you can pur­chase that the gov­ern­ment has not earned mul­ti­ple taxes on, on top of the tax you pay when you pur­chase the item or use a service.
The PRICE of each item you buy already includes the cost to pro­duce that item. The cost to pro­duce that item includes taxes that those pro­duc­ing it had to pay for. So the final pur­chaser of every good or ser­vice in this coun­try is actu­ally paid for by YOU, the pur­chaser. You are pay­ing for all the taxes paid to any­one in the long line of peo­ple or busi­nesses used to cre­ate what you are pur­chas­ing. And you are pay­ing taxes on top of that when you pur­chase the item with AFTER income tax dol­lars, as well.
