I asked my daughter, no change. She makes about $2500 per month.

How much does she pay in actual taxes, I wonder.
My guess would be about $150/ mnth.
Or $75 bi-weekly.
Or $32.50/ wk.

Would also guess that amount/ month keeps her qualified for SNAP benefits, no?

Extra dollars now, more you owe come tax time next year.

I have done the math for me taxes that I will owe next year. I will have to pay about $800 more. I would rather have that 800 taken our little by little over the year than have to fork it out all at once.

She has a working husband, so no she doesn’t qualify for snap.

The government wastes a lot of what they take from us , We appreciate the money we work hard for, and would like to keep more of it because things at the store are going up like crazy. If you live in California, you have seen all kinds of extra taxes going up. Gasoline isn't cheap in Cali, and neither are groceries.
We have a liberal tax, spend, bleeding heart, knee jerk and wasteful government here in California.

If you are ok with CHUMP CHANGE while the tax bill give Don the Con's billionaire buddies tens of millions in tax break you really need a reality check.


You call it "chump change" but the asstard leftists wouldn't even do that.

I guess you'll send any extra money back to the government because you don't need it.



Only chumps think the tax cut will give them some change.

Horse and sparrow economics at it's most pure.

Works out to about $50 extra a month for us. That's honestly not even noticeable for us despite being lower MC for where we live.


I have no idea what it works out to for me. I don't read my paychecks. I get paid weekly, my takehome was about $1200/week after taxes. I assume it's more now, but I don't know how much.

I'm not sure it really matters either since these cuts were inflationary, so more money will simply result in the same or potentially less purchasing power. Not to mention, the cuts are only tempoary for us, permanent for the billionaires.

so you're already seeing the effects less than a 3 months span of a tax law being enacted.
interesting.

"Difficult math" is the thirty to forty percent the fed takes outright from everyones paycheck, man.

I worked from 1969 to 2007. I always paid my taxes, never needed welfare, support the troops and the poor, went through the birth process 3 times, bought a house with cash, get grandchildren off to and from school, help a disabled husband, involved in my community and politics. I am not a thief.
What have you accomplished for others?

I'll be happy to take your extra 2500 since it's bread crumbs.

Sounds like you really want those bread crumbs. Maybe it's not so little as you like to pretend.

I wonder about that as well. Have you considered changing your dependent status? I don't know if you claim yourself as a dependent for withholding, but if you do, they will take more out of each check, and it may offset that increase.
