Got guns? Plan to report them on your 2010 Tax Return?


Got guns? Plan to report them on your 2010 Tax Return?

There is a new email making the rounds that the Obama Administration is proposing that all guns must be claimed on your upcoming 2010 income taxes.

The email even says that this has been confirmed with SNOPES and provides a link to the SNOPES homepage.

A lie. A big lie. It just isn't true. And SNOPES has confirmed that it isn't true … if you are diligent and actually search out the supposed confirmation.

Here is the actual SNOPES assessment of this story, which is actually a retread from 2009: http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/taxreturns.asp

THE EMAIL SAYS:

Gun owners… look what's on the 2010 tax return!

The American  public had better wake up.  This is about as scary as it  gets. Talk about a slippery slope. Hitler started the same  way.  Freedom evaporated before anyone knew what was happening.

Subject:  Gun owners… look what's on the 2010 Tax Return
 
VERIFIED  – TRUE by  snopes.com 

As  if we didn't have enough to get upset about!  If  you have a gun, I hope it isn't registered!

It  begins… more Freedom gone… the right to protect  yourself and your family gone!  Now ALL GUNS must  be listed  on your next (2010) tax return!
 
Senate Bill SB-2099 will require  us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own.

It  will require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.
