according to hr block's Tax estimator, which we have found fairly useful...
This year you would owe $323 if you had 45000 in total wages, 2 children, married filing jointly.
(19% income tax with 2000 in child tax credits.)

However that is with absolutly no other deductions/credits.

That's what we had in 2005 and we got over $5700 back in federal taxes and about $1000 total from state taxes for both IL and NC (we had moved). But that was for 3 kids. So a bit lower by maybe $1k? for 2 kids.

I use the paycheck calculator at paycheckcity.com and it's always been spot on. In fact, dh and I just used it this morning to calculate what his check will look like after an upcoming raise, and we used it on his current check stub first just to see if it was accurate and it was spot-on.

Thanks bocks_box. I've been looking for an estimator like that and couldn't find one! It's great that it does state taxes too, b/c I can figure my federal withholding, but was having trouble figuring out what state would be b/c I'm thinking of moving to a new state.

We made almost 45000 this last year and we are only paid in less than 100.00 after our refund. We did have the credit for contributing to our 401K plan, the savings credit or whatever it was as well.
