Tax Question

Wed Sep 17, 2008 2:28 am

I might be getting a $10,000 cash bonus, how much will I really get after taxes?..

Thanks in advance, I'm not good with numbers.

What's you tax status? What's your normal income? What state do you live in?

Lots of questions, but I suspect you'll get somewhere between $6,000 and $7,000.

I've received some accrued vacation lump sum cashouts from old jobs. In both cases, the federal income tax was a flat 25%. I didn't have any state income tax since WA doesn't have one.

Based on my experiences, I doubt you'd see more than $7500, probably less.

If ME AVN FAN was around he would tell you that all you need to do is wire your money to a numbered account in that great democracy called Liechtenstein and you need not worry about taxes.

Use this aggregate bonus calculator.

Be advised such bonus payments are subject to different tax rules then normal payroll rates. You can net as little as 45-50% of the bonus when all said and done depending on your tax specifics.

If it's cash, just stick it under the bed and tell nobody!
