Thread: How Does Your Paycheck Look?

    Default How Does Your Paycheck Look?

    Today is Friday, a lot of people are getting their first paycheck of 2013.

    My taxes actually went down by a couple bucks maybe (completely negligible) except for Social Security, which went up about 33% bringing my paycheck amount down significantly. So much for my 'cost of living' raise for the last year or two. Wiped out.

    Anybody else?

    I like how you gave the inflation number.

    And remember:

    The new Medicare payroll is different. It will be imposed on the combined earnings of a married couple.

    Employers are required to withhold Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes from wages paid to employees. But employers do not necessarily know how much a worker’s spouse earns and may not withhold enough to cover a couple’s Medicare tax liability. Indeed, the new rules say employers may disregard a spouse’s earnings in calculating how much to withhold.

    Workers may thus owe more than the amounts withheld by their employers and may have to make up the difference when they file tax returns in April 2014
    . If they expect to owe additional tax, the government says, they should make estimated tax payments, starting in April 2013, or ask their employers to increase the amount withheld from each paycheck.
    Based on the idea of natural rights, government secures those rights to the individual by strictly negative intervention, making justice costless and easy of access; and beyond that it does not go. The State, on the other hand, both in its genesis and by its primary intention, is purely anti-social. It is not based on the idea of natural rights, but on the idea that the individual has no rights except those that the State may provisionally grant him. It has always made justice costly and difficult of access, and has invariably held itself above justice and common morality whenever it could advantage itself by so doing.
    --Albert J. Nock

    Hard for me to to guesstimate. I get paid every 2 wks. Had 2 holidays @ double time and 1/2 on it. (xmas 2012, New yrs. 2013) 6 days were still 2012 rate and 4 days 2013 plus a raise for the 2013 days so who the hell knows. I'll wait until I get my next check of a straight 80 hrs. and compare it then.
    “But let it not be said that we did nothing. Let not those who love the power of the welfare/warfare state label the dissenters of authoritarianism as unpatriotic or uncaring. Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security. Understanding the magnificent rewards of a free society makes us unbashful in its promotion, fully realizing that maximum wealth is created and the greatest chance for peace comes from a society respectful of individual liberty.”

    Paychecks for most people coming in next week.

    We need to be ready to explain to the confused liberals on twitter what happened and why on average their paycheck will be $80-100 down.

    13% increase in my overall taxes. They went up in all categories.

    We got a 1.2% raise across the board, and I got a 100 dollar raise on top of that...However, due to the taxes and the SS tax going back to 6% I make the roughly exactly what I did before.
    "I know the urge to arm yourself, because that’s what I did. I was trained in firearms. When I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick, I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out I was going to take them with me."
