YANMTA. You are not my tax accountant.

Am I saving enough for taxes from my second job? I live in the US and have no state income taxes. My main job is W2. I make around $56k and usually end up close to even on my Fed return. I now have a second job that's 1099. I get paid $150 a week and set aside $50. Is this probably enough for Fed (income/SS) taxes?

Vancouver BC area: How to calculate your income tax?

BC'ers - how do you calculate the rate of income tax you should be paying? After googling I'm coming across wildly different rates for brackets, as well as terms like 'average rate' and 'marginal rate' (what are these? The internet doesn't want to tell me!) I normally do my own taxes at home (UK) but am being driven round the bend trying to get the figures for this.

How do state income taxes work when you work in a different state?

My husband and I just switched our legal residency to a state with no income tax (South Dakota). This is very common amongst full-time RVers because SD recognizes a full time travel status. However, we're neither working nor living in South Dakota, so how do state taxes work? [more inside]

Fuck tha USPS

My boyfriend's tax refund check was mailed over a month ago, according to Where's My Refund. We have surpassed the 28-day waiting period before one can file a claim for a missing or lost refund check. Does anyone know about how long it might take for the lost refund claim to be processed and the refund to actually be received? Also, he's wondering if he can change his mode of receipt from mail to direct deposit, to speed up the recovery. If you have experience in this arena we'd love to hear about it. [more inside]

Calculating California state income tax withholding

I feel like this should be really easy, but I'm coming up with a non-sensical result. I am considering taking a job that would involve a pay cut (long story, I promise it's worth it). I am trying to calculate what my actual paycheck would be. I'm using the paycheck calculator at Paycheckcity.com to figure this out. But the number it's giving me for California state income tax doesn't seem right. [more inside]

Can I make gifts to my spouse to equalize our taxable incomes?

My wife and I file our federal taxes jointly but our Iowa taxes separately. She works part-time and has a fraction of my income. It appears that we would pay lower state taxes if our income was split more evenly between us. Can I make gifts to her (of cash or perhaps shares), deduct them from my taxable income, and add them to her taxable income?
