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?

Yesterday we were told by friends to expect over 50% of his salary to be taxed, leaving us with net income not far from what we make now in landlocked midwestern state.

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]

Total taxes

My friend and I were having a discussion over acceptable marginal tax rates. I'm wondering where I would look to quickly find out how much of my income I would have to pay in state and federal taxes at different income levels. Is there a quick (online) way to figure this out? Exclude complications like stocks, marriage, other tax breaks, etc. If you want a specific salary, how much would I have to pay in taxes on a $100,000 salary? Thanks!
