New pet tax (backdoor legislation to fund Obamacare)
« on: April 01, 2010, 08:21:56 AM »
Apparently there is back end legislation that requires all dog owners to register their pets with their state to pay a yearly tax on them. This tax will be determined by weight.

All the tax monies collected goes to support and fund the new Health Care legislation that was signed into bill a couple of days ago. Cities and towns will work with State Officials on reporting with Rabies registries and town dog license databases.

Failure to file will result in penalty. In the Boston Herald today Massachusetts is the first to start this process and has created a site when you must register your dog and determine your tax. The site was up and running this morning.

www.pettaxma.com


So, I would personally check your local cities and towns to see if they are launching anything. The above site does give further detail on this tax - which personally I am not happy about at all.
