Sorry, I posted this on another thread, when I really meant to start a new thread. Everyone has been talking about the payroll tax increase and how it will impact their budgets in the hundreds of $$ a month. Isn't the increase 2%? So if your payroll taxes increase by $300/month doesn't that mean that you are making $15,000/month or $180,000/yr? Is my "getting older brain" having a problem with the math or is $180,000/yr income a hardship? I'm not trying to be snarky, I honestly think my math is off because most people who are complaining about the increase are talking about several hundred $$ a month and I personally would find it easy to cut several hundred $$ a month if I was making $180,000/year. Or are people talking about something else?
