Hello there,

What does this news mean exactly? http://www.dailyrecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/arti...

I don't understand very much out of it. Is Jon in economical danger?

No he isn't, he can't have spent all our money from the tour already!! This article is just saying they want to stop Jon and others abusing a tax dodge on farmland. After all its not like he can't afford to pay his taxes..

Is this in relation to the property that Jon owns with the beehives on it?

Yes.... Jon and Dorothea sell honey.(though I have yet to come across any...wonder where the market is! LOL) and what this law is saying is that they must sell $1000 worth of honey (and have proof) as opposed to the $500 minimum now. Will it ruin Jon financially? Uhm, no. Doubt he will miss it. This is a legal tax break and certainly his accountants are advising him to take it. IF the law changes, he will either qualify for the tax break or not. Hope the explanation helps...let me know if you have any more questions.

In this country, even people who can well afford to pay their taxes, don't. That's just a fact of life.

Oh Somemora,

That's not entirely true! JBJ pays more in taxes in a single year than I make in a decade! Jon has donated more to charity that hubby and I will make in a lifetime. He pays more than his fair share. And if he can reduce his tax bill to the state of New Jersey (NJ has one of the highest tax bills of ANY state in the nation, by the way...it was one of the reason we moved away!) then, what's wrong with that? It was a LEGAL tax deduction. I bet when you file your taxes, you take all the deductions you can...What's wrong with that?

Jenn

Oh Jenn Trip, I'm just pointing out that there are people who do not pay their taxes no matter how much they can afford to...Wesley Snipes and a few others come to mind...and come on, those silly little tax deductions may be legal, but really...making honey!!! Yeah, I live in FL where everyone who has a religious statue or owns a cow wants a tax deduction or not to pay at all...and I don't use all of the tax deductions that I could use...especially charitable contributions.

I'm sure Jon and all other wealthy people took some hits withe the stock market-but he has alot of money so don't lose sleep over this. Jon won't be happy with the farmland thing though. I know he had saida year ago or so that the taxes in NJ were "killing him".

The taxes in NJ are crazy.... people are leaving the state by the droves... something like 250,000 people have relocated just in the last twelve months. I still have family in the garden state and their chief complaint is how corrupt the government is and how insane the taxes have gotten. Should the loophole be closed? Absolutely. Should we crucify those who took the deduction when it was perfectly legal to do so? No. However, it DOES smell fishy... I mean, has anyone here ever heard of Bon Jovi honey? If so, I would LOVE to know where to buy some...might help with my allergies! LOL! I think Jon taking the deduction in the first place is what made the "ordinary folks" stand up and demand that the loophole be closed. He is taking heat for it.

Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens... maybe they will unload the place in Jersey just to stop bleeding money in taxes... what a shame...
