  • I, too, have to pay taxes... but mine only amounted to about 4,000.00.... Are you sure you are figuring that correctly? That sounds more like your salary.

  • We do pay very high taxes because we do not have right offs. But that does leave us broke. And I do mean broke.
    This is why the working class get so angry when they raise taxes.
    If you make under 50k you are ok, but over that you pay hard. And it is hard to see all the money go to pay for government mistakes. When you need it yourself.

  • I think I'd move to a different country before April 15th... better start packing :D
    No just kidding- you can write the IRS and tell them you'll make payments on it. I think the interest rate is low- not terribly low, but it isn't going to bust the bank. KWIM?

  • Seriously, if you owe $69,000 to the IRS because you didn't have anything withheld on your paycheck, you must have a MEGA HUGE salary. Like around half a million huge.

    Are you asking how much in withholding you owe to the government on a $45K salary? There's a calculator at the IRS website:,,id=96196,00.html
