I have received a federal tax refund of $1,400 in the past two years. I am now 25 years old and still live with my folks. Previously I worked for $11 an hour and it was a mix of part time/full time depending on when I had school. I currently work for another job and make $45,000 gross and I calculated that I will have $33,000 net. I also still live at home with my parents but they don't claim me as a dependent.

My question is, I am in the process of finding a place of my own, and I was wondering if I lived on my own, am single, earning the above salary, what estimated tax refund could I be looking at every year?  Or is it impossible to estimate? I live in Illinois if that makes a difference.

You should be able to "reverse-engineer" this, so to speak, with an online take-home pay calculator. I know state-specific ones exist, but didn't find one really fast. Keep googling. Illinois makes it easier, 'cause they have a flat income tax.

I'm fascinated by the question, 'cause I don't understand why more people don't come out even with the government at the end of the year. If your W-4 is correct, and you don't have extra income or extra deductions (maybe those are bigger "ifs" than I realize), payroll should sort this out for us.

Of course, no one knows what the legislatures will do with the tax codes going forward. You're not going to get complete precision.

Do you 'Edge'?

In a conversation some time back with another member of the AofM community, the guy told me about 'edging'.....how he used it to increase his orgasm and the amount of his ejaculation. I am interested in hearing from other guys on how they 'edge'....how often and the actual action and knowing when it is completed....and how it affects the length and strength of their orgasm and if it increased the amount of sperm they ejaculated. Come on guys; I am interested in hearing your experience and your…See More
