I have a job offer for home health PT in the Chicagoland suburbs. The owner stated the wages depend on how I file my taxes- which threw me off guard. I am filing with a w4 and was offered $67 per visit. Would this be average? Salary websites do not indicate anything about different taxes. A w9/1099 would most likely be a higher wage but I am not interested in filing that way.

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high.

Guess will go with happy for now.

Hi All,

I have created a simple excel based tax calculator which would help calculate the in-hand salary based on the package offered. It also gives flexibility of HRA calculations, comparison between old and new tax regime, calculate difference between paid tax and remaining tax for the financial year due to change in salary and so on. Anyone interested to get this, kindly like my profile. I need 11 profile likes to open DM and post that, we could use DM to interact and share this excel file.

Does anyone have family members who constantly demand money because they feel like you’re rich now because you’re a lawyer?

I’ve given a detailed summary of all of my expenses yet every month one family member in particular comes to me for rent money (not some, the full amount, and they refuse to get a job). It has become quite the burden.

I'm 33yo, 220k TC, work in US on a visa and have been investing for 1.5 yrs. I max out my 401k, invest 40% of my pay per month mostly in ETFs, and have some money in HSA. The goal is to get to 43y with 2M (and hopefully a green card from the US govt). However, the current investment levels aren't getting me there.. there's about 1M gap between where i want to be and where I realistically would be in 10y. Any ideas on how to bridge this gap other than increasing investment levels to 75+% / paych?
