(Forbes)   I received from my employer a voucher for a free turkey today, just as I have the last 17 years I've worked here. The difference is today, for the first time, Obama taxed it at 35%, which is coming off my next paycheck. Thanks guys   (forbes.com) divider line 220

So you're still getting a turkey for 65% off retail price. Sounds like a good deal.

Romney's turkey was taxed at 9%. Sucker.

It's too late now, but you could've donated your voucher to a charitable trust held by the Mormon Church and it would pay you back 10% of a turkey each year tax-free.
 
2012-11-14 04:07:47 PM
Sure it did.

And then he death panel'd your gramma.
 
2012-11-14 04:10:33 PM
No you didn't. Fringe benefits like that would not be taken out of income on paychecks. Additionally, are you really admitting that you are in the highest marginal tax bracket? Whoopdy-frickin'-doo.

Don't fark with me, I'm in hour three of Tax law.

It sounds like he's saying that the free turkey voucher was worth a quarter million dollars in income.

I would have actually taken home more turkey had I not gotten that voucher.

You can blame me. I voted for the Turkey Tax. I just didn't expect it to be implemented so soon after the election. Damn, that Obama works fast.

If you're in the highest bracket, you pay north of $4,000 per bi-weekly pay period in federal taxes and take home more than $7,000. I don't think paying $7 for a $20 turkey is going to hurt your feelings.

You were wrong about everything and the country rejected your idiotic ideology. A simple "I'm sorry" would have sufficed.

Keep farking that turkey!

If it's on your pay stub as a "bonus" you might have to pay taxes in it. Not a tax guy.

Hey IRS, this dude's company wasn't putting bonus income on tax filings and has been breaking the law for the last 17 years.
 
2012-11-14 04:45:41 PM
Subby is of course, full of shiat. He will not be taxed out of his regular earnings for the turkey. His company cannot replace his wages with poultry.

If anything, the turkey might show up on his stub as a holiday bonus, with a value listed, which the government could tax. This is money he would not have been paid and is not taken from him at all.

So yeah, subby, you're a farking liar.
 
2012-11-14 04:46:41 PM
I don't believe you.
 
2012-11-14 04:46:59 PM

Exactly my point. And he's implying that he already earns >$250,000 (which I highly doubt) so the turkey fringe benefit would be taxed at 35%. Admittedly, under § 119, a turkey provided like this would be a taxable fringe benefit, but that just means that the last 17 years he's been failing to report the turkey as income.

No employee gets taxed on a holiday turkey. It's a gift, not part of compensation.
 
2012-11-14 05:03:23 PM
Well, for what it's worth, I didn't get a voucher at all, but I did buy and bake a chicken last week, only I've just moved into a new house and apparently there's something wrong with the oven, since that poor chicken ended up completely Death Paneled.
 
2012-11-14 05:05:58 PM
Maybe its just me but I don't think that article has anything to do with the headline at all.

Why was this greenlit? Are the modmins smoking some of that crystal weed from the thread earlier today? And if so, can I have some?

Make sure to claim and attach copies of all the coupons you used throughout the year on your tax return.  Those 2 for 1 Lunchables don't seem like such a good idea now do they big spender?.
 
2012-11-14 05:24:58 PM
So it's Obama's fault your employer has been doing this wrong the whole time?
 
2012-11-14 05:43:29 PM

BarkingUnicorn: No employee gets taxed on a holiday turkey. It's a gift, not part of compensation.


Or maybe instead of it being a gift the employer was a total dick and put it on the employees' compensation ledger for the first time to be a dick. Dick.

Or maybe the headline has nothing to do with the article.

Or maybe we're being trolled.
 
2012-11-14 05:45:41 PM
Obama taxed it? You are so full of shiat, your eyes are brown.

Now, perhaps for the tax year 2012, the CFO thought (or interpreted tax law to mean) that employees were not being taxed correctly on ALL earnings. And perhaps that voucher for a turkey COULD be seen as earnings. Things like "personal use of auto" are taxable to the employee, so perhaps goes the turkey.

However, this is the shiattiest maneuver I've ever heard of, if it is true. Subby must work for the awfullest, crappiest, and terrible-est company EVAR. Most CFOs just bury that shiat under employee benefits or whatever. Maybe your CEO was trying to make a point about the election? Tell the truth: Do you work for Papa Johns?
 
2012-11-14 05:46:31 PM
And people like Subby wonder why Republicans lost the election.

Maybe there really are two Americas. The honest America, and the lying hell Republicans create for themselves.

Under IRS law, this guy could be fined $5000 for each of the past 17 years he's been cheating on his taxes. Plus 5 years in jail.

Better hope no one notices.

Even if this was true, which clearly it isn't, wouldn't that be an amazingly great thing? I mean, for what, a $6 contribution the nation's working class can have health care! That's very good news... for America.
