The following tax increases go into effect next year, all a result of the Affordable Care Act, a/k/a Obamacare:1. The reduction in FSA limits.2. An increase to 10% of AGI (from 7.5%) in the exclusion of deductible medical expenses. This change is delayed until 2014 for those 65 and older.The following two were mentioned in a recent thread:3.
