    Saw paycheck for last week....... Was expecting so much more.... Government took over $800 in taxes. Would have been way so better off staying home with family on the Friday after thanksgiving.

    Increasing your 401k contribution and/or increasing the number of withholdings on your W-4 ahead of time would have let you keep more of your check.

    Maxed out ROTH 401k in October. I'm not in a situation where getting an extra 200 now vs tax time is going to change my life one way or the other.

    They don't tax it more than any other check.. they just WITHHOLD more. All of your yearly income is taxed at the same rate. UUGGHH

    Then unemployed people shouldn't be on welfare if that's the case.

    There's a difference between no job and working when you don't need to

    All the guys who worked Friday is the reason why ups will do whatever they want to us because they know drivers are greedy people

    You're giving the government an interest free loan. Adjust your withholdings. You'll owe the IRS come April 15th, BUT you should at least invest (wisely) or collect interest the rest of the year..

    You call it greed, I call it early retirement.

    I'd prefer not to owe the most powerful entity in the government anything at any point.
