Bonuses are subject to the same tax rate as the rest of your ordinary income. But they are generally subject to a flat 22% federal withholding rate and something like 10-13% for NYS/NYC withholding taxes. And then regular payroll taxes ...so expect about a 35-40% all-in withholding rate.

Got it, thanks for the reply.

Yup. Federal-22%. State-13.78%. NYC-4.5%. Medicare- 1.45%. So, def around 40% if you live in NYC.

A senior leader at my company has his company picture as one of him with his son. I’m curious… do you think moms who might use a similar photo would be judged more negatively (ie perceived to be more family oriented / less invested in her work) or do you think this perception is impacted by seniority (a senior leader posting something like this —> positive impression vs a more junior person —> negative impression regardless of gender)… or both? Or is this just not a thing at all?

Is it a no-brainer to jump ship? Obviously I’ll be making more money for the same (if not less) billable hours. But what are some other considerations?
