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

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

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.

After 150 replies, someone probably already said this...check your deductions. If you have zero, they take out more taxes. At the least, you can take 1 deduction for yourself.Talk with human resources.

My DH is taxed at around 40% and I'm taxed at about 20%. There's really no reason to 'do the math' when it appears on the paystub.

My husband has about $1200 a check taken out. That does not include insurance, or Social security (He is exempt form SS), and we live in a state without state income taxes.  And we still get to write a check to the IRS every year.

Hubs retirement and both of our Social Security bring in 12,075/mo after deducting $1700/mo for federal income taxes.

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.

Yep.  It's disgusting.


This is complete bullshit.  I'm a federal employee and the only people who can't pull SS in the future are those under CSRS, but they don't put into either.  FERS employees pay into SS as well as their retirement plan, they pull social security when they reach the age, and FERS is like a federal version of a 401K.

All you bitching about taxes, stay off the roads. Don't call 911. Your kids better be in private school!!
We all benefit.
As for EIC, that's such a small portion of where taxes go.
Your bitching makes you look ignorant.


THIS!!!!

 On his last commisson check 1662.00 was taken out. On his draw (which is every two weeks except when he is paid commission) 32.00 was taken out for federal. SS 509.47 was taken from commisson. 38.77 from the draw. 119 and 13.39 for Medicare. 388.00 and 7.00 for state. 

So....in total 2769.63 is taken from his checks each month. :/
