We are talking about HR 1068 right? I don't see any such reference in that bill (and it's certainly possible I'm missing it!)
Is this still a good link to the bill?
That's the old bill, that 100k exemption was not in there yet. That was the bill from the begining of the year. The new bill is Let wall street pay for restoration of main street act 2009, it has yet to be posted and only thing that was floating around was copies to journalists. It should be filed soon. This bill is the one that had exemptions or refunds on the tax for first 100k of the year and some retirement , educational , and health savings accounts. I am not sure if the bill is written in stone yet because there was some conflicting things out there, one is .25% for all instruments, the other was .25 just for stocks and .02 for futures. So we will not know exactly till its filed, and referred to a committee.
