    Does anyone here have self employment stuff as their sole income?

    Out of curiosity, how much, rough percentage is okay, do you have to pay in taxes, between self employment tax and income tax?

    I guess I should have answered that with a yes and a caveat that I am married and my husband is also self-employed and we file jointly.

    I try to hold aside about 25%, but also be pretty rigorous with write-offs, receipts and legitimate provable deductions (mileage, office space, etc.).

    Depending on what you earn though I would go as high as holding 30% - having been double taxed (self employment and income) for over 20 years it's better to hold aside a little more if you can.

    Luckily, I don't have to hold much aside as I have the most taken out of my regular check which handles the income part. I was just trying to figure out what my effective take home pay would.

    So, I'll split the difference and say that I lose 27.5% of the MTurk money to the government.

    Is Amanda Seyfried supposed to be Kevin Bacon's wife in You Should Have Left? He's like 30 years older than her. :emoji_confused::emoji_upside_down:

    Realized I could sprinkle buffalo ranch seasoning on my kettle chips. So, you could say it's been a pretty clutch night!

    Yeah that's what I would do.
    But sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised with write-offs and it's less then I expected.

    That's a win on all fronts.

    Rooting through my cupboards now to see if this magical combination is possible. :)

    She is. I just saw a short preview of it on YT and thought maybe she was his daughter until it was obvious they were lovers. No Kevin, no. Maybe when you were in Foot Loose. :emoji_joy::emoji_joy:

    This one will definitely take much longer than the other hit that's up. You must find event-related emails (between 5-15) from a long list of emails for nine tasks. Bubbles after each task. I'm not sure how the bonus is set up as the instructions still show info from the other hit where it's 50 cents per task if you find them all or 50 cents - 10 for every one you miss or wrong one you add.
