    Questions on Quebec Payroll Withholding

    If an unmarried person in Montreal, without children, is making $300 per week, before taxes, what is his/her takehome pay likely to be? How about if making $250?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Check out this tax calculator for Ernst & Young's web site and you will find all the info you want.

    why should marital status and number of children be relevant to the amount of taxes you pay?

    It will be more in the 215-230$ range I think.

    Allowable deductions for dependents, etc. Of course, that's also subject to how much your spouse makes.

    sorry

    i just don't see why, in a supposedly free country, certain personal lifestyle choices are rewarded by the government

    You are aware that prostitution, personal drug use, smoking, alcohol and even the colour you paint your house (in many cities) are regulated in the USA and Canada, right?

    It shouldn't be so, but it is.

    For 2008 the figures would be 267$ for 300$ gross and 232$ for 250$ gross. Figures willl change a bit in 2009.

    The Ernst and Young calculator linked to above suggests 277$ and 241$.

    They are looking to increase the tax-base by populating. Revenge of the womb, as it were.

    I'll leave the 'supposedly free country' alone for the moment. Sounds like an entirely different thread.
    You are cordially invited to toss my salad. There's an app for that!

    In Québec, on a paycheck, no difference relating to marital status or age, as far as the taxman is concerned. Same deductions for pension plan, unemployment and federal/provincial taxes. Unless you get the insurance stuff factored in. Marital status, children and such will make a difference on the income tax declaration submitted at the end of the fiscal year only, not on the weekly income.

    Even that seems illogical to me.

    Then, if there were no tax deduction, people would not have children?!

    The government's mentality assumes that people pattern their lives around the tax consequences of their actions. If there really are people who reproduce for the sole purpose of gaining a tax deduction (whilst ignoring the overwhelming total cost of raising children), are these really the people we want to be having children?
