in reply to Moral Dilemma

Well...speaking as a geek from backwoods Louisiana.....TAKE IT! I'm not kidding. 30K for a starter position and having little experience, sounds like an ideal deal.....heck that's what I started at and I'm making way more than that now. Everyone has to start somewhere.

Besides, a job is exactly what it is and nothing more, it's a job.

Disclaimer: This opinion only holds if you do not live in Taxachusettes, New York City or California. All of which make 30K a year seem like slightly more than minimum wage. Don't ask me how, they just do ;) If you live in any of these places please take no offense at my jibe.... It's just that I recently helped my wife with her NY state tax return and nearly messed myself.

    I'm a New Hampshire resident who works in Massachussetts, and you are correct in saying that their income tax bites. I was expecting them to give me a return of $800 (or there abouts). They "adjusted" that number to just over $400. And I used Turbo Tax to do everything. What a crock!
