Looks like it, the last one was on the 15th.  Maybe they just don’t have enough political stuff to cover right now...

I’ve recently started doing that, I don’t want to blindside anyone so I do confirm that they have shared their concern directly with the coworker before looping them into the conversation. It has cut way down on the petty stuff and had some good results in the legitimate conflicts.

You’re right, I meant effective tax rate.  Sorry for being a dick last week when I originally replied to you.

The main error is clearly the classification, no way there is any non-fiction in that book.

I remember there being one on Observation Deck, did the actual site have one as well?

But, it’s going to be 70 here tomorrow.  I want to soak up the last bit of warmth before the 27 months of frigid cold hits us.

The only income taxes you pay are federal and state, and unless you have something seriously wrong with your withholdings, those do not combine for 29%. I assume you’re lumping payroll taxes in with that income tax number. The OP made a claim that “everyone” pays 25% income taxes, that is demonstrably false. Read more

I won’t weigh in on the rest of your comment, but can answer part of it for you.  Your group health and 401k are pretax deductions, they drive your taxable income down.

I mean, that’s doable with only $150-200k in non-IRA investments and a moderate 6% return. I’m sure everyone making $60k has at least that much. /s

Not everyone has state income tax and you’d still need to be a high earner to hit a 25% marginal rate.

I assume you don’t understand how progressive tax brackets work?  I was referencing the marginal tax rate.

Damn, you’re right. I wasn’t figuring cap gains taxes on those investments.
