It's about $8500 until later in the year when you stop paying Social Security taxes, at which time it kicks up over 9K. Not including bonuses.
Thank you. That poster just felt the need to be an incessant prick and argue with me over nothing. I don't understand why people do that so much on this forum. Everyone needs to RELAX.
You are the one that called me a clown. Don't call me a clown if you want to be treated with respect. Clown.
Anyway I think this is incorrect. There are multiple threads about this (and obviously it depends on your dependents and other various deductions) but the consensus is that take home in NYC is 96-98k. That number has also been verified by several first year associates and does not include healthcare and 401K deductions (which vary by firm and individual). Tiago's estimation means 6-10k more than any calculation I can find.
I also used this to calculate: http://webinfocentral.com/RESOURCES/PayrollTax.aspx
I called you a clown because you LOL'ed at me for something that you misread. That's just pathetic. Also, if I am off by $500 or $1000, that's really not relevant.
Big picture: You have a shitload of money left over after paying student loans. $6000/month is enough to comfortably budget for rent, food, savings, and extras. That is, unless you want to live in some swanky Manhattan neighborhood. Not me, I plan on living with roommates in Hoboken or White Plains for around $1200/month.
