By John CarneySenior Editor, CNBC.com NEW YORK ( CNBC) -- The better-than-expected jobs numbers released Friday may mean rising taxes for many workers. January saw 247,000 new jobs added to the economy. Unemployment fell to 8.3 percent. The stronger numbers may make federal lawmakers reluctant to extend the payroll tax cut.
