Well generally if you make less than a certain amount (15k or so I think) they don't tax it very heavily. Meaning that if you're a student or something making about 100 a week flipping burgers that they won't tax it as much. And if you make less than a thousand in an entire year then they probably don't even tax it at all...

I make about 1300-1700 a month and they tax my one paycheck roughly 15-16% every week. my other check it depends because I don't make the same amount every two weeks. but damn 4 percent? I want to be in your tax bracket :p

I make about $2,500 per month, but after these deductions:

Federal Taxes - ~145
Soc Security - ~100
Medicare - ~25
State Taxes - ~45
Life Insurance - 20

I only get to take home about $2,150 a month. And with a wife, daughter, rent, auto insurance, groceries, utilities, and other bills, that's really not too much left over for me.

Anyway, just thought I'd join in and see how I do against my fellow FEOA members.

that's really not too harsh rellimpk...my parents (both teachers) lose about %50 (or more) of their pay to various taxes before they see any of it. my mom's part time, i dunno exactly what she's making, and I'd guess that my dad makes roughly $50K gross a year ($25K net). and this is Cnd. I'm not sure he even makes that much.
I'm currently making about $2100 a month, i lose about 10-15% to taxes. but i have no expenses except fuel for the Scort, so it's pretty good :D

well not to be rude and but in, BUT i never know how much ill make, all i do is deliver pizzas. So it can be 50 a week, to 300+ a week.
Yeah that's why i decided I didn't want to be a delivery boy when I started at this pizza place...I got a steady income, and I'm making a quarter more than the delivery guys, and a quarter more than pretty much everyone else there :D

...but each delivery they make another 75 cents plus tips (I've seen this one guy run out 25 miles and they just said thanks and slammed th door in his face...he was pissed off bad) They only make about 10 runs a night (a BUSY night). so that's an extra 7.50 plus tips. not a lot of cash if you ask me.
