And what bracket does it place you in, in your state. (You may have to google your state)

DH just started a new job as an auto mechanic working 70 hours a week. I was checking how much we make a year so I can up how much I send to my retirement fund. When I did the math I almost crapped. Between DH's income and mine we make $96,152 a year gross income. We have NEVER made more than $65,000 a year so this is a HUGE income jump. I'm stoked! The median family income in my state is $81,033. So that puts us on the line between middle class and upper middle class. Where are you?

We are poor. That is all I'm going to say. How has the family journey been going? Any new arrivals?

Around 40K. I think that's average where we live.

I make between 10-14 grand a year.  It's a tough life.

My husband earned about $250,000 last year.  We live in the deep South.  I am pretty sure that puts us in an upper income category.

My DH's income is in the high 6 figures.  

ETA:  We're in Central Va.  The cost of living is a little high here but not as bad as Northern Va.  We are upper class.

Around 44,000 which puts us at the lower middle class end of the scale.
