Compensation

Possible to recuperate withdrawn taxes from your sign on bonus? I.e. my sign on was 20K and I got 12K post tax, can I get all or a part of the 8K back? If so, how much?

If you google “IRS Withholding calculator” there is a tool that can tell you exactly how many allowances to claim on your federal W4 to get back to baseline as close as possible. Not going to speculate on your state W4 because each state taxes differently, but it is possible to calculate

Couple of dumb questions, but thought I’d ask in hopes that I can get back on course. 24M with the following assets: ~$30k HYSA, ~$6,600 Fidelity Roth 401k from old employer, ~$14k Vanguard (60% traditional 401k, 4% Roth 401k), $13.5k M1 Taxable acct (ETFs). I make ~$100k annually (salary+bonus). I’m contributing the max to my 401k as of this year. Questions below:

I’m looking to start getting into eating better and exercising. I’m in my mid-to-late thirties and know I need to change for my health. I don’t have any idea where to start with at-home workouts and easy initial things to change in my diet to ease my way into it so it sticks. I live in NYC and don’t have room for any major workout equipment in my small studio. What are some initial resources you’d recommend for those that know nothing about how to start with workouts and dietary changes?

Best SUV in the 20k range? Open to used (2-3 years) as long as mileage is reasonable. Looking for something that’s not too big but can handle Chicago winter. Ideally would want cloth seats, rearview camera, and remote start. Thinking RAV4 or Honda CRV so far. Thanks!
