Do people not understand how taxes work?

likefunny

P1: nope. Across the board people have no idea how taxes work and say silly things like “it’s taxed higher!!!” It’s frustrating considering how highly educated we supposedly are

likefunny

Uhhh it’s taxed the same. More of it might get withheld in a lump sum but you get it back when you file

To the firm? It’s the same since they’ll have to pay out your PTO. Your team may be annoyed since they lose transition time

Yes

I’ll note that it’s not the same to OP- as I understand it, pto payout money is taxed higher. When I go out, I’m using every drop of my pto first.

So I had already told my manager that I would be using PTO for a trip so that wouldn’t really be a surprise.

But just wanted some feedback on if it’s still okay to use the PTO after giving my 2 weeks or if it’s just better to give my 2 weeks and have my last day be before my trip.

I’d just have your last day before the trip. And take the extra money...

Definitely last day before the trip and get paid out on your pto

So I have a week between the end of my trip and the new role and don’t mind working for a few days after my trip. Still better to have my last day be before my trip?

How would this even work? You'd give your two weeks notice, go on your trip, come back and work for a few days and then leave? Sounds like a dumb idea to me. Just do everybody a favor and take a few days off. Use the time to transition to your new role.

How do sick days work? Just realized that 1/3 of my “PTO” is actually sick days (and it’s not generous and you don’t get paid out when you leave). I’m very lucky to not get sick but does that mean in order to use some I’ll have to spontaneously say I’m ill with little advanced notice? Seems like a policy which rewards people for leaving their team in a lurch.

Advice needed: my stepmom pays for our vacation every year but she is a monster. I say we all pay our own way and dissolve her hold. The others say just deal with it for a free vacation. She is controlling, mean, and creates a stressful environment. I started getting my own hotel down the street but that made my siblings very mad. So I said Fine everyone pay next year and they folded. I hate it there. But they are my family.
