good rule of thumb you will take home around 75-70% or your gross income depending on 401K or other retirement investments you contribute to from your employer and your insurance premiums and also based on your income tax bracket and your tax income filing status.

39,900 x 75% $29,935 give or take.

Start an LLC and write shite off. We have two. One for my rental properties and another for my wife's job. We write a lot of stuff off and it helps a lot. Of course it goes without saying you can't just go hog wild and write shite off that isn't legit or the IRS will come snooping.

I'm actually surprised at what appears to be the amount of truth in this thread. There's only one or two posts that don't pass the smell test.



I'm sure I'm one.

Claiming zero, you probably take home about 1100-1200 every 2 weeks. I don't pay for 401k yet, so that's only with health insurance. No dental or vision either

My first year pay sucked, was probably below poverty level for where I lived, but that was all part of the drill,(unnecessary drill, IMO, ) but in five years it had multiplied x7, and in another five, x13. It was worth waiting it out.

Yea I make 40 right now and it sucks. Basically a resume building year bc I don't like inside sales. What's weird is when I had no sales experience on my résumé, I got more interviews than now. I've been applying for outside sales positions with no luck :/
