I am planning to work for a fireworks distributor for 2 weeks this summer. I am going to make 15% of all sales and estimate to make $9k. How much do I need to put aside so that I don’t get KILLED in taxes? I am married and file jointly and my regular W-2 from my full-time job will be about $60k that will come down to about $30k in taxable income.
You will most likely pay around 30%, between standard income tax and payroll taxes. That is a good place to start. If you live in a state/city with income taxes, add that to the mix.
