I got my W-2 today and noticed something new. In Box 12, I saw an figure in excess of $6,800. The code is DD which according to the legends on the back is "cost of employer sponsored health coverage". It goes further to say "The amount reported with Code DD is not taxable"

This amount may not be taxable this year but, I am betting that it will be next year. Is this Obamacare biting us in the butt? For all you that asked for it, here it comes.

OVER 2000 pages of pure crap.
OBUMA CARE!!!! YEA! GOTTA LOVE IT!! LET'S GIVE MORE TO THE OTHER 47% and take from the rest of working America. The only neat thing is the other 47% will be paying some as well, most of em didn't see that coming.
Pelosi said of the Affordable Care Act, We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.
Did you know the presidents controversial health care law helps guarantee life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? Thats what Nancy Pelosi said on the House floor.

The amount in box 12 includes BOTH the employer and employee portion of insurance.
Once they split the employer / employee you should expect it to become a taxable benefit... just the way this administration is heading.
Call and ask your provider as I did and they could not tell me how much my premium will go up next year, just to say it WILL GO UP. Hello, BENDOVER WORKING AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.
One more thing to keep in mind... They started taxing "cadillac" plans this year. So, if your health benefits were more than X amount per year, your employer pays 44% for each dollar over that amount. Maybe that is why they are tracking it on W-2 now. My employer responded to this by cutting our "cadillac" plan down to the amount that put's you just under the threshold. The result was instead of paying more taxes to the government, my employer cut my benefits. Thanks Obamacare!!! If that's not socialism, I don't know what is...

Where are the progressives with their support of the Obamacare act now? Why aren't they telling us how great it is now? Just today the democrats have started blaming the down turn of the economy on less government spending. Are you ready to send more of your hard earned money to Washington for them to waste or are you just willing for Washington to borrow more money and give your kids the bill? How long are you going to stand still and allow the democrats to ruin America?

obozo the clown and harry mafia reid announced last week more money and taxes are needed come March without any major cut in expenses. Where do you think the country is headed now libs? They have to keep printing money to keep their no where regime from collapsing. To he11 with the people of today or tomorrow, it is all about the elite and thier frigging hollywood celeb legacy. Those bassturds will light up the fires of he11 brighter than the sun.

Not what I wanted to hear, but thanks for the info. I read where 70% of the people are against this forced tax and can understand why now. I would venture to say the potus young voters who have a job or report any income who never had insurance are in for big surprize but that is good. Everyone who makes a dollar should pay taxes like everyone should.

Box DD on your W-2 lets the IRS know who has insurance and who doesn't. That makes their job of fining those without insurance easier. Also, I read yesterday that Obamacare is up to 12,000 pages of regulations and still growing. So much for passing the bill to find out what'ss in it. And what is really ironic is that all Federal employees have their own insurance and don't have to fool with this mess. Are all the folks who voted for Obama happy yet??

The middle class the majority will have to pay more, I know the potus said he would not but democrats are always the reason the country is in the mess is it in. Next year will be the year of doom for the working middle class.

He wrapped a turd in a nice shiny wrapper and liberals thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. It doesn't matter how pretty they try to make it look, at the end of the day it's still a piece of shit. Unfortunately now everyone will have to take a bite.
