Well, I thought that the worst case scenario was that my severance pay would be taxed about 30%.
Oh, no. Adding all the taxes together, it’s going to be over 36%. Sigh.
However, this is probably going to be enough that I’ll no longer be eligible for unemployment benefits, and that I’ll have to pay back what I’ve already gotten. I didn’t use much, so I’m fine with that. It’s kinda crazy, though, because the state is all gung ho to have you swallow your pride and apply, and then you have to give it back all the same. It seems like a lot of time and effort for nothing.
But as a cushion just in case, I did appreciate it.
Still working on Beatus. Making good progress, and the book continues to charm and instruct me.
