|Subject: ||RE: Aren't you disgusted when you look at your gross income vs net income?|
To answer the question - no, I am not disgusted when I look at my gross income vs net income.
Early on, I realized that my pay check was smaller than my gross pay.
And I would figure what the net pay check would be for subsequent raises.
So to have one cash objective I would need to shoot for a higher pay objective.
I just except that and don't get emotional about it.
The higher my income, the higher of a percent that comes out, but I am still making more money. Making more money gets easier as you go along.
I am not interested in going to a lower pay to get a lower tax rate.
I focus on take home pay and really ignore gross pay.
