I work for 40 hrs aweek

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
This week it will be less because of Monday it was orientation so I only had 6.5 hours that day. Tuesday and Wednesday I got 8 hours in. It will be 8 hours when I work for 5 day so 8x5 is 40 hours. So before taxes is $380 an I'm claiming 4 dependents so one of my co-workers said that he claims 1 and he gets about $305 or something like that. He says mine will be like $340 or $350 weekly sense I'm claiming 4. Still good paycheck I say. I get paid weekly not biweekly.

If I get $340 I will get a whole month $1360.00, for a year $70720.00 so it's good.
If I get $350, I will get a whole month $1400.00, for a year $72800.00.

Either way will be great! Not tomorrow but next Friday I get paid and I can't wait.

Either you're not showing all your work, or your math is wrong.. ?

Redo your math. You are not making that much.

Be careful because if you claim 4 dependents in your check they will take out less taxes and you may end up owing money at the end of the year. That happened to me, I had to pay like $2500  because they didn't take out enough. Now I always claim zero and just get a nice check at tax time so I distribute that into monthly amounts for my bills. If you have to then maybe claim 2 dependents in your check.

Exactly! My husband makes like 3-4 times that per week and he's not making 70k/year.

I dont see how you did that math.
