What is the after tax net salary of 70,000 in Connecticut?

This will depend on what tax bracket you fall into, your filing status, how many exemptions you claim, and whether or not you have other deductions, such as health insurance, life insurance, 401k, etc. What is your filing status? How many exemptions will you be claiming?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

Let's assume 2300 health insurance and no other deductions or exemptions.

What would that be?

Hi, I would like to use your services again to make sure I'm filling in the Form W4 correctly, based on the above calculation. I'm happy to pay an additional £36.

Would that work for you?

Cheers

Expert:  Tax.appeal.168 replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,
What are your questions regarding the Form W4?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Actually, I just realised that since my start date is Aug 17th I would only be paid a partial amount.

I've recalculated. I would love to know if I had done this correctly, if there are any mistakes, and I am happy to pay the £35 for additional service.

Below is my calculation.

Thanks

Reut
