Our taxable income is calculated based on a series of questions. How much money did you make, how many children do you have, are you married, and so on? Beyond that things begin to get a little more complicated. Do you own your own business? If so what expenses are associated with that? In addition I calculate the amount of money I save, and invest. If that money has an increase I will need to pay taxes on that. I also figure in any donations that I might make during the course of the year. While I am in school I take advantage of the American Opportunity Credit, which gives me a credit for going to school, which reduces the amount that I might need to pay per year. Tax adjustments and deductions are calculated as follows. I am given an amount that I need to pay each year based on my tax bracket. I am in the 15% tax bracket. (William, 2008) To make things simpler I am going to use my actual income. Before bonuses and overtime I make $33900.00 annually.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
