The Northeast Revenue Act of 2012

A BILL to implement a tax code into the 2012 budget

Section 1.) Corporate Tax rates shall be as follows

Corporate Taxes, Income
0%   $0 - $10,000
2%   $10,000 - $50,000
4%   $50,000 - $75,000
5%   $75,000 - $100,000
7%   $100,000 - $335,000
9%   $335,000 - $10,000,000
11%   $10,000,000 - $15,000,000
12%   $15,000,000 +

Section 2.) Income Tax rates shall be as follows

Income Taxes, Single Individual
0%   $0 - $9,500
2%   $9,501 - $35,000
3%   $35,001 - $80,000
5%   $80,001 - $170,000
6%   $170,001 - $367,700
7%   $367,701 - $1,000,000
9%   $1,000,001 - $2,500,000
11%   $2,500,001 +

Section 3.) All tax rates in this bill shall expire at the start of the next fiscal year.

Another possibility.

This makes much more sense.  I'm glad we're not talking about 20 and 30% anymore.  To quote a certain Representative, the original proposal was rather batsh**t insane.


My opinion:



Not all of them, just a higher percentage.

So 30% in addition to the 60% they already pay federally IIRC?

Actually, they should pay 60% in regional taxes.  That's 120% of their income!  We'll tax them so hard they won't be able to sit down for a week.

This plan imposes taxes even higher than the plan proposed by Jerseyrules, a plan that Napoleon, the Liberal Party candidate for governor, has attacked as taxing Northeast citizens far too high.  I vote nay on this extremist proposal.

Voting time has expired.  The ayes are two, nays are three, abstentions are zero, and non-voting members are zero.  The bill fails.

The Assembly will now consider the legislation introduced by the gentleman from New York.  Debate will be for 48 hours.

If your income range is between $0 and $10,000, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 1%.
If your income range is between $10,000 and $20,000, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 2%.
If your income range is between $20,000 and $25,000, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 4%.
If your income range is between $25,000 and $35,000, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 6%.
If your income range is between $35,000 and $50,000, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 8%.
If your income range is between $50,000 and $1,000,000, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 9%.
If your income range is $1,000,001 and over, your tax rate on every dollar of income earned is 10%.

All rates indexed to inflation, so as to avoid the poor being forced into higher brackets in the future.  Reminding that this is in addition to federal taxation

Everyone has to pay their fair share, remember?  That's why those making millions of dollars are only paying 2% more, of course.

This is actually better than RL California rates FTW.  At any rate, I think that while these rates are too high, they are preferable to the current rates, and I motion that debate should be extended so we may discuss this further.

What current rates?  We have no tax code.

I will need the specific amount of time you would like added for me to consider.  Seeing as how there has been little commentary on this so far, I would be very reluctant to grant any requests to extend debate time.  More than likely, any additional time we spend on this bill will not be used.
