Default Taxes...

Can anyone tell me on average if I were to make 50k - how much taxes would be taken out? Say you get paid on th 15th and 30th? I'm trying to figure out what that would work out to be in take home pay. Thank you all.

It all depends on how many exemptions you claim, your health insurance contribution, and then there are medicare and SS taxes. You won't have city & state taxes, but health insurance down here, depending on where you're working can be very, very, very high. For example, my husband works at American Heritage and they deduct $365 (**25%** of his take-home) every other week for family health. Also, be sure to check out the quality of the health insurance. We have a $1K deductible per family member and a $60 co-pay at the doctor's. I suspect the smaller the company you work at, the worse the benefits will be. AHS is not that small with over 2200 students and hundreds of faculty and staff.

Chelsa - Just wanted you to be aware that on the news today stated that currently Florida has the highest unemployment rate in the nation. Just be very careful and make sure you have a job already lined up. Good Luck!!!

Thanks - to be honest the prospect of moving there is looking very dim - I don't think it actually going to happen, unless, some amazing job popped up and we know how often those things really happen.

Chelsa-If you REALLY want to move, I say don't give up hope. Next year the economy may be a little bit better for you. In the meantime I say visit and continue to read the newspaper as much as possible.
