Step 1 Select Income:
$250,000
State tax rates are computed based off income selected above. This is a simplified view based off married filing jointly rates. Standard deduction, 40k in 401k contributions ($0 in 401k contributions for 25k and 50k income, these were intended as “FIRE” income simulation.
Step 2 Select Desired Housing:
Typical 4 Bedroom
Select Housing Costs Either by Median, Typical 2/3/4 Bedroom, Condo, Fixed Amounts, or Median 2 bedroom rent. Mortgage costs assume 20% down 4% interest rates. If you select a fixed housing price that is < 1.4x the median home price for that city it will automatically drop to the bottom and receive a strike through.
