--- Quote from: ksheed12 on May 18, 2015, 10:31 ---The duration is listed as long term (I read >1yr), so odds are that per diem wouldn't apply. As we all know living expenses can be a tax deduction. Furthermore, if you figure $1000 per month for rent and utilities that works out to $6.58 per hour on 40 hour weeks. So your wage would be more like $33.42 per hour and not accounting for any overtime. Still a pretty darn good wage. [2cents]

Once again I would rather have the non-taxable money.  Not sure how you figure $70,000 is good money when you are supporting 2 residences.  This job is long term and no one is paying relocation, so once again you are out of pocket to get there.  I been on the outage train for  about three years my last salaried job was $32.50 hr, I will say with the per diem, I do better working the outages and collecting my unemployment every year.  So I don't understand why there is an incentive for people to lose their per diem, not to mention if you work overtime, you place yourself in a higher tax bracket.  Even if you only received $100/day per diem for 7 days and worked 40 hrs a week I would rather have the $28hr+ per diem for a year, with the option to stay longer.  As the $700=$17.50hr on forty hours and guess what....IT'S NOT TAXED!! We can go back and forth about this all day but at the end of the day non-taxable money is more valuable than taxable money any day of the week.  When I get a job offering salary I deduct 30% off the top, because that's about what I have to live off.  Tax deductions happen at the end of the year.   I don't live once a year I live everyday!!  I'll continue to live by my math because it seems to work better for me!!!  By the way I came up with $28/hr because 30% of $40 is $12 that's about how much you are losing every hour in taxes, that you may or may not get back at the end of the year!! Even if it was just 20% you are still only bringing home $32/hr.

Chimera:
The answer is simple: Don't apply for the job.  And, if approached, don't accept.  All the rest is just hand-waving and gum-flapping.

This has gotten very far  [OT]

I'm not the tax expert, however, once you go over 12 months it is taxable back to the first day!
