How much gets taken out of your paycheck (or SO's weekly in taxes)

I make $820 a week and bring home $ 550 of that. Thats 270$ a week!

Thats over a thousand dollars a month..

I know its neccessary, not trying to start a debate. Its just crazy to do the math.

I need to find a magical land with no taxes... 820$ a week! that would be amazing! lol

Quoting areles:

that is nonsense...

but on the other hand, our taxes are paying his salary. and he gets a thousand holidays a year. so. ;)


Quoting shellbelle4:

Even more annoying to me is that my DH is a fed employee who doesn't get to withdrawal SS when he's older but he still has to pay into it.

Our pay is similar, it's maddening.  You can thank all those who voted Obama.


Quoting Anonymous:


an appalling amount!  I got paid this morning.  I get paid every other week:


Fed income taxes 1290.51


Medicare 109.31


SS 467.38


That's 1867.20 to the federal govt.  except for SS, which maxes out, that's 26 times a year.  So yes, those getting the EIC and denying that they aren't getting a gift from the rest of us are full of shit.


Plus 115.47 to the state for income taxes, 6.01 to the state that I work in (for unemployment) and 263.35 to the city that I work in for their income taxes.


So much for having worked hard in school and gotten a good job.  All it gets you is the right to support others.


 


Yep.  It's disgusting.

Have you triwd adjusting your exemptions? Do you get a refund every year. The goal should be to figure our whar your actual tax amount should be and only hace that taken out. It takes a littlw work so I don't think most people do it.

Dh is military so his pay on rhe 1st was for the last half of Dec. He has gotten his mis month pay yet but we the amount that is taken out still leaves us with a decent amount of money

Are you claiming all your witholdings? I file for zero witholdings even though I'm married with two kids and a house. That way I get a nice refund at year end instead if paying but I know plenty of people that do the opposite and file for maximum witholdings on their W9 so that they will not see as much get eaten from their paycheck each month. The federal taxation is nothing compared to what SSI takes plus you can't get a refund on that.

Time to get some more little tax shelters :p

With no taxes this magical land would have potholes on every street, emaciated elderly, no police force or fire department, no public education, stray animals everywhere...
