    Here you get overtime on saturday as a M-F employee. It does not matter if you took 4 days off, if you are /scheduled/ to work Monday + Saturday, one of them must be at an overtime rate. This is why they insist in the WR on asking you whether you want to work Saturday or not even when scheduled. I'm filing for it right now however, since PT employees cannot have their schedule changed for the week except in emergency, it's a neat trick that screws FT employees out of their overtime, however.

    You don't understand how taxes and withholding work in the least. Half is not "gone", it's just being withheld. You'll still only pay your rate at the end of the year.

    ...or you could adjust your W-4 now, keep more of what you made and get a little bit less back when you file...

    In the western conference pension, you can start drawing the pension at 65 and keep working. You continue to earn pension credits while doing so. Every year your pension check would increase while you were double dipping.

    Who in the heck wants to keep working when they are 65 or older?

    Porters? Clerks? Feeder drivers who want to take home over 200k/year? I don't know. Certainly not me.

    That's one thing upsers does right. Updating the w-4 withholdings is easy. I've been getting back less and less every year. I'm finally adjusting it correctly. It's usually adjusted within one paycheck.

    If one knows their estimated wages/paycheck, you can look at the IRS and the wage bracket method shows you what each estimated withholding # will be withheld on your paycheck.

    If you never change a thing, standard is 0, and they'll take out the most. You can even set it to a set amount to be withheld.

    The fun trick is trying to balance it so you get a zero refund. NO free handouts for the government.

    One can work in reverse. If you know your final projected income #s, you'll know how much you owe in taxes. If you are already withholding that much, change the w-4 for the rest of the year so they take out nothing. Pretty simple indeed.

    People pay to have their taxes done when the majority of people could do them on a smart phone for free.

    Bingo!!

    Midway through our class they walked us through a sample return and invoice. It was relatively basic-----couple of W-2's, 1098-T, 1099-INT and 1099-DIV. The invoice was $509, which included several up sell products (Piece of Mind and Identity Shield). The same could have been down with their tax software for less than $100.

    I’m sure you’ll inform them as such and let them make an educated decision.
