You are paid with tax money.

So the fact that you pay taxes (as my wife does as a teacher), is a bit odd. Your salary, and my bride’s, comes from taxes.

There was a congressmen years ago that suggested that federal salaries be adjusted to what the actual take home amount was, and then don’t charge them federal income tax. Since the money spent to process the returns made it a net loss.

OK you clarified yourself. Anyone know if the EBT folks pay taxes?

Yes we are paid with tax $. Make no mistake I am not trying to defend all fed workers, we have poor employees like all companies. Are fed workers more difficult to terminate? you bet, never liked that aspect of my employment. I worked in the private sector for many years before moving to federal.

Also fyi, I am on my third year of a pay freeze, no COLA, no bonus of any kind, nothing. Maybe that's the way it should be. I've been in federal service for 23 years and make around 68K. I don't think that's an outrageous annual salary do you?
