I just got my final check of the year.
I’m dissapointed with my pitiful bonus, but I’m also shocked at my federal and state income tax. It wen’t from 9% and 2.5% respectively to 18% and 4.5%!
Have I just not noticed this happening in the past years? For comparison, I made the equivalent of an extra pay check and a half this monthly period. This 2 week period check is essentially equivalent to 2.5 of my usual 2 week period checks. And I don’t make much. Did something go wrong or is this normal?
Well, I guess that root canal I’ve been putting off, is going to have to wait another couple of months.
