to determine how much you need to make to get out on your own, you need to determine how much you will have to pay for rent, utilities, phone, insurance, food, clothing, transportation and if you want some enjoyment, entertainment once you have arrived at that figure, then you can determine if working for $12.50hr will be sufficient if you worked 48 weeks, full time that would be $24000, and you would have had $1440 withheld for FICA(7.65%) and at least 1% (or more) for state disability, so that now leaves you a net of $22320 your non taxable income for a single person without dependents is $9350 which means $12970 is taxable and the lowest rate is 10% your income will definitely be more than that so as it looks now you have a disposable amount of possibly $20375 divided into 12 parts, or about $1700 a month---will that take care of you moving out?

The dollar amount taken is not the same for every dollars. For some dollars, only 7.65 cents is taken. For other dollars, 30-40 cents is taken. In your case, after adjusting for what you get refunded later, the amount that the government actually keeps will be 7.65 cents from each of the first 5700-9350 dollars per year and 17.65 cents from each of the next 8000 or more dollars per year... but that is using 2010 rules. Starting in 2011, it will be 7.65 cents from each of the first 5700-9350 dollars per year and 22.65 cents from each of the rest of the dollars (up to well over 30,000).

refer to the wage-bracket table (you can google one up) to find your Federal Income Tax withholding. You need to find your State Income Tax withholding, if applicable. Fica withholding (social security and medicare) 6.2% of the first $94,200 earned per my 2008 textbook. Look up your State's Unemployment TAx (SUTA), Also, look up The Federal Unemployment TAx (FUTA). Deduct any Union dues, employee Insurance contributions, or charity donations and you have the amount being deducted from your paycheck every pay period. Of course there is an easier way to do this. Allow me to demonstrate: Say you make $15 an hour and you worked 40 hours this week. $15x40 hours= $600 dollars After deductions you go home with $450.00 dollars How much taxes did you pay? Simply divide your take home pay ($450) by how much you made that period ($600) to find your tax rate (how much you paid in taxes as a percent). $450/$600=.25 You paid 25% of gross earnings in taxes. Why would you'll give this a negative remark? It is correct. Just to prove to the intended reciever I will journalize this: Dr. Sales Wages Expense Dr. Office Wages Expense Cr. FUTA Payable Cr. FICA Tax Payable Cr. SUTA Payable Cr. Medical Insurance Payable Cr. Charitible Donation Cr. Union Dues Cr. Account Recievable Cr. Wages Payable
