New Year, new taxes!

I work in the payroll department and this is the first check of the year. I found it interesting that my Federal withholding went up by $22.00 a check (even though I raised my number of dependents) My boss making six figures, federal withholding went down.

I looked at the rest of the employess who make less than $15.00 an hr (like me) and all of their federal withholding went up too.

I am so glad that the people making the big bucks can keep alittle more of it,even if the people just trying to get by have to give alittle more!

  • Not considering the current much is your boss paying in taxes and how much are you paying in taxes?

  • The people who have six figures salaries are paying their dues, trust me!

  • Gee, I wonder how much you make... I bet you and your husband don't make 10-15 dollars an hour...
