Looks like the formatting didn't carry over very well.

Let me see if it comes through better here in the nQ&A mode:

As a follow-up Taryn, you can go here and input the numbers yourself ... very easy to use: http://www.tax-rates.org/new_york/income-tax

Just go to the NY state income tax estimator (Section 2) about halfway down the page.

Hope this has helped,

Lane

If this HAS helped, I would appreciate a feedback rating of 3 (OK) or better … That's the only way they will pay us here.

HOWEVER, if you need more on this, PLEASE COME BACK here, so you won't be charged for another question.

Hi Lane,

Thanks for your answer, very helpful. Any suggestions as to what I might do to lower that 23.68% tax bracket? How can I keep more of my money?

Thanks,

Taryn Bailey

The very best way, in my opinion, is to save money into your employer's 401(k) plan.

Every dollar reduces your taxable income (as with any other tax deduction) BUT you get to keep the money ... AND it grows tax deferred (no 1099 on that growth every year).

Other less direct benefits are investing in your own home, if you Do decide to take out a mortgage, the interest is tax deductible, as you build equity in your home,,, AND when you sell, you get to exclude any capital gains (up to 250,000 for single and 500,000 for a married couple filing jointly)
