    Let's say for example, you view your Google and/or Affiliates and your total was $23,801.82, what would you do with the money? Buy a new car, pay off loans, give it all to Origin, what?

    I would pay off my car... The payoff is like $25something or another. That would definitely have my car paid off quick.

    Well, I take that back. I would put half on my car and put the other half in savings. That would pay about half of my car off and then be a nice replacement in my savings for the down payment that I put on my car a few months ago.

    1. Aficionada profile image86
      Aficionadaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      itech,

      the dot is to indicate cents in American money.  "$23,801.82" is read as "twenty-three thousand, eight hundred and one dollars and eighty-two cents."  By the way, a lot of us almost believed that the poster was telling about an actual payout.  She was being hypothetical!

          I actually first wrote "He," changed it to "S/he," then decided that the turtleneck style of the shirt in his avatar looked more like what I might expect for a woman.  If only I had first checked out his Hub titles...........I might still be waffling!

    Almost 24K in a month? I'd spend a bit just for "live for today" extravagance, buy some nice stuff for my family and friends and maybe throw a party and make sure everyone had an outstanding time. Whatever I spend on this, an equal amount goes to charity.

    The rest of it goes into savings and I get back to work with a giddy smile on my face.

    Referring to earlier kickback qualifications...what about single-word names that have been here over two years? Sounds fair!

    I was going to say that I would throw it straight into our house savings account, but that's actually 20% down on the 35 acres outside of town we've been eyeing, so I'd be off to the bank to talk to them. Of course, subsequent payouts of similar size would be awesome so we could develop the land into a home place that much faster, but still smile.

      wychicposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, except that for many people $11 million or something is a very uncomfortable amount and they wouldn't have any clue what to do with it, while just under $24K is easily conceivable for a lot of people and not enough to affect a complete lifestyle change. That said, I agree with you, I need to get back to work tongue.

    None of you seem to appreciated the need to pay a large amount of tax on this sum?

    If you earnt this each month in the UK, you could expect most of it to be taxed at 40%, with some of it taxed at 50%!!

    How much of this would be taken in tax in the US?

    1. dcladesigns profile image61
      dcladesignsposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      It would be taxed based on whatever income bracket it put you into at the end of the year. So 24k*12+(whatever normal income you may have). Probably close to 40-45% if you were to look at the charts. Even a net pay of 14k a month would be nice.

    2. emievil profile image78
      emievilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Here in my country, that amount is like 1 million, which will be, more or less, taxed at 32%.

      Have to agree with dcladesigns, 680k is still very nice.

      Answer to the OP, save up to buy a house and lot.
