[2015-4-24. : 11:01 am]
Azrael -- Then you get back a nice fat check.
[2015-4-24. : 11:01 am]
Azrael -- You can set what percentage you want taxed, and should always go with the highest one available ("Single").
[2015-4-24. : 11:01 am]
Azrael -- Also, if you have too much deducted for taxes, yeah.
[2015-4-24. : 11:00 am]
Azrael -- If you work at a minimum wage job for example, you most likely don't earn enough to even get taxed, so at the end of the year they'll give you back ever dollar you paid.
[2015-4-24. : 11:00 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- If your withholdings exceed your actual tax
[2015-4-24. : 10:59 am]
Jack -- "getting your money back" like if you screw up your taxes and give too much?
[2015-4-24. : 10:59 am]
Azrael -- You have to fill out taxes if you want a chance at getting your money back.
[2015-4-24. : 10:59 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- If all you do is earn wages and get a W-2 at the end of the year, it's about roughly as complicated.
[2015-4-24. : 10:58 am]
Jack -- so most people don't have to do any tax stuff, assuming there's no capital gains/donations/other that they have, in which case there's like one small form to fill out
[2015-4-24. : 10:58 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- end of the year*
[2015-4-24. : 10:58 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- I did mean self-employed or contractors. People who get a 1099 at the end of the end instead of a W-2.
[2015-4-24. : 10:57 am]
Azrael -- All that tip money is off the books.
[2015-4-24. : 10:57 am]
Jack -- In NZ if you're an employee you get tax deducted every time you get paid, before you receive your pay, and that goes immediately from the company to the government. So you basically can ignore that.
[2015-4-24. : 10:57 am]
Azrael -- Like waitresses.
[2015-4-24. : 10:57 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- Believe me that everything I'm saying is a very condensed version of the complexity that is the US tax code
[2015-4-24. : 10:57 am]
Azrael -- "Off the books" usually refers to someone getting paid directly in cash.
[2015-4-24. : 10:57 am]
Jack -- that pdf is over 100 pages long...
[2015-4-24. : 10:56 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- Yeah, self-employed you have to fill out one or more Schedule C / C-EZ and Schedule SE to report income
[2015-4-24. : 10:56 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- In both cases, you might get fined if you're not paying enough.
[2015-4-24. : 10:56 am]
Jack -- off the books = self-employed more or less?
[2015-4-24. : 10:55 am]
Azrael -- I did my taxes in 10 minutes this year :)
[2015-4-24. : 10:55 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- If you own a business or work off the books, then you're supposed to pay "estimated tax" every quarter based on your earnings and where you think you'll be in the end.
[2015-4-24. : 10:54 am]
Azrael -- This is why TurboTax exists.
[2015-4-24. : 10:54 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- If you're an on-the-books employee, you fill out a form with the number of exemptions or specific amounts for deductions on your pay as you go.
[2015-4-24. : 10:53 am]
Jack -- Do you have Pay As You Earn or other tax deducted before your employer gives you your pay?
[2015-4-24. : 10:52 am]
Azrael -- Interesting.
[2015-4-24. : 10:52 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- If you really want to get into it: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040.pdf http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i1040gi.pdf Though many people will be using a 1040A or 1040EZ depending on the requirements, filing a 1040 is never wrong.
[2015-4-24. : 10:47 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- But it's at the point where the government itself is considering simplifying it so they can save money by downsizing the IRS
[2015-4-24. : 10:47 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- Yeah, it's pretty stupid, there are tax companies and corporations lobbying to keep it from being simplified because if it's complicated they make money
[2015-4-24. : 10:46 am]
Jack -- idk if NZ's entire law ever is seven million words
[2015-4-24. : 10:46 am]
Jack -- on the face of it it sounds similar to NZ until you say seven million words
[2015-4-24. : 10:42 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- This typically includes loopholes for people like Warren Buffet who make billions of dollars but have an effective tax rate less than their secretary.
[2015-4-24. : 10:41 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- It's a stupid and complicated system when the tax code is seven million words and nobody really knows it all.
[2015-4-24. : 10:41 am]
Mini Moose 2707 -- Basically you have an income, some is tax-free for having dependents, then you get a standard deduction or more if you donate a lot, then you pay some percent on the first X1 dollars, some greater percent on the next X2, etc etc tax brackets
[2015-4-24. : 9:43 am]
Jack -- or san salvadorian taxes
