I finally got my first check at work today, and I'm really pissed off.
1) In Texas
, there is no state income tax.
2) My deductions for insurance do not take effect until my next check (i.e. no deductions for insurance were made from this check).
3) I have not yet set up my 401k plan, so no deductions were made for it either.
Now, with those three things in mind... I only brought home 64.87% of my gross pay. That is ****ing bull****. I'm not even going to say how much I actually paid in federal taxes, simply because it makes me sick to my stomach to even think about it.
Social Security and Medicare can lick my ****ing nuts.
