What does being white or male have to do with your tax bracket?


Also, 35% tax rate for a single person means income over $200k. Wana trade?

Sure more income would be nice, but 200k or not, it’s still hard earned money that the government IMO has no right to 35% of!

After insurance, taxes, retirement investments, llife insurance, flexible spending accounts, and other direct deposits for investments, mine is typically about 58%. IT definitely eats into my hunting budget .

71% after all said and done.

Should probably be lower as I am not contributing as much to my 401K as I should be. Hope to turn that around in the next year or so.

If your take home pay is lower than you'd like but you end up getting a big tax refund, go see your HR folks and adjust your withholding. Don't give the feds an interest-free loan.

Mine is 91%.

Married with 3 kids. I have less taxes taken out so uncle Sam doesn't get a free loan from me all year. I still end up good at the end of the year tax wise.
