Higher Taxes, Starting Today
But wait, it’s not just taxes.
According to this link, it’s not only higher taxes, but retirement accounts being hi-jacked through rule changes.
‘The bulk of the wealth of the American people.’
Not to be outdone, the IRS will increase penalties for under and overpayment of taxes as reported by Fox Business via Jerimiah Babe (time stamp 22:16).
At least it’s nice to know, implementation of the ‘$600’ rule will be saved until next year. 🙂
So, we have the context for the year 2023; i.e., wealth destruction, asset confiscation, fines and fees.
It’s a straightforward plan on ‘their’ part.
What’s also straightforward as reported by Babe, a large number of Americans don’t even know what’s going on let alone be willing to take action.
Then, The Elephant
Let’s not forget the ‘elephant’ that’s likely to be the biggest driver for 2023.
We see that elephant every day now and sometimes multiple times a day. It’s starting to reach the fringes of the mainstream with articles like this one.
Scroll down to The List … It’s No. 2
That elephant and its subsequent lack of demand (less population, fewer buyers) as a result, will likely affect real estate in a big way … for decades to come (not advice, not a recommendation).
