I’m about four weeks from graduating with a degree in computer science. I have been lucky enough in my job search these last few months to get hired in to a company already.
I’ve really only worked part-time for the majority of my life, or was paid under the table for work I’ve done. This will be my first ‘real’ job making ‘real’ money.
I know there is tons of rules, information, etc regarding taxes. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good resource for tax information that explains it so someone who doesn’t know that much about taxes can understand it. Something like a ‘Taxes 101’ to help out, or even if someone wanted to try explaining some things to me.
I basically know the tax brackets, but as for tax deductions, random things they take out of your check, etc I’m not so sure.
I’m from Michigan, and have a nice chunk of student debt to pay off too (pretty sure theres educatino deductions). Just trying to figure some things out so I’m not screwing something up and paying the gov more of my money than I really need to.
