Well, I just did my income taxes and it looks like I have paid roughly 12.94% of my income to the government. When I started my job, I had the govt pull out an extra $20 per check, since I wont miss that on a paycheck, but I will see a difference at the end of the year, whether I dont pay anything, or I get a refund. It worked for years. Well over the last two years, I have had to pay money. Time to up my extra deductions so I dont have to pay money again next year. What about you guys?
