What are some names you should not name your child?
Let's talk some data here -The twenty “Whitest” girl names -MollyAmyClaireEmilyKatieMadelineKatelynEmmaAbigailCarlyJennaHeatherKatherineCaitlinKaitlinHollyAllisonKaitlynHannahKathrynThe twenty “Blackest” girl names -ImaniEbonyShaniceAaliyahPreciousNiaDejaDiamondAsiaAliyahJadaTierraTiaraKiaraJasmineJasminJazminJasmineAlexisRavenThe twenty “Whitest” boy names -JakeConnorTannerWyattCodyDustinLukeJackScottLoganColeLucasBradleyJacobGarrettDylanMaxwellHunterBrettColinThe twenty “Blackest” boy names -DeShawnDeAndreMarquisDarnellTerrellMalikTrevonTyroneWillieDominiqueDemetriusReginaldJamalMauriceJalenDariusXavierTerranceAndreDarrylSo how does it matter if you have a very white name or a very black name? Over the years, a series of “audit studies” have tried to measure how people perceive different names. In a typical audit study, a researcher would send two identical (and fake) resumes, one with a traditionally white name and the other with an immigrant or minority-sounding name, to potential employers. The “white” resumes have always gleaned more job interviews.According to such a study, if DeShawn Williams and Jake Williams sent identical resumes to the same employer, Jake Williams would be more likely to get a callback.The implication is that black-sounding names carry an economic penalty. Such studies are tantalizing but severely limited for they can't explain why DeShwan didn't get the call. Was he rejected because the employer is a racist and is convinced that DeShawn Williams is black? Or did he reject him because “DeShawn” sounds like someone from a low-income, low-education family? A resume is a Fairly undependable set of clues - a recent study showed that more than 50 percent of them contain lies - so “DeShawn” may simply signal a disadvantaged background to an employer who believes that workers from such backgrounds are undependable.Nor do the black-white audit studies predict what might have happened in a job interview. What if the employer is racist, and if he unwittingly agreed to interview a black person who happened to have a white-sounding name - would he be any more likely to hire the black applicant after meeting face-to-face? Or is the interview a painful and discouraging waste of time for the black applicant - that is, an economic penalty of having a white sounding name? Along those same lines, perhaps a black person with a white name pays an economic penatly in the black community, and what of the potential advantage to be gained in the black community by having a distinctively black name? But because the audit studies can't measure the actual life outcomes of the dictious DeShawn Williams versus Jake Williams, they can't assess the broader impact of a distinctively black name.Maybe DeShawn should just change his name.So does a name matter?The data show that, on average, a person with a distinctively black name - whether it is a woman named Imani or a man named DeShawn- does have a worse life outcome than a woman named Molly or a man named Jake. But it isn't the fault of their names. If two black boys, Jake Williams and DeShawn Williams, are born in the same neighborhood and into the same family and economic circumstances, they would likely to have similar life outcomes. But the kind of parents who name their son Jake don't tend to live in the same neighborhoods or share economic circumstances with the kind of parents who name their son DeShawn. And that's why, on average, a boy named Jake will tend to earn more money and get more education than a boy named DeShawn. A DeShawn is more likely to have been handicapped by a low-income, low-education, single parent background. His name is an indicator - not a cause - of his outcome. Just as a child with no books in his home isn't likely to test well in school, a boy named DeShawn isn't likely to do well in life.And what if DeShawn had changed his name to Jake or Connor: would his situation improve? Here's a guess: anybody who bothers to change his name in the name of economic success is - at least highly motivated, and motivation is probably a stronger indicator of success than, well, a name.—It would go very big, but you can get the essence of the impact of names of people on their lives.Source: FreakonomicsI recommend this book to all and to read this full study on parenting and naming children, its just awesome.
Has religion messed up your life? If so, how?
Oh, definitely yes. Religion ruined my life.My parents weren't religious at all, but to appease our grandparents my brothers and I were sent to Sunday school every week. (I suspect that getting a couple of hours of peace and quiet may have been a factor as well.)We moved a number of times as I grew up, and since my parents didn't really care they simply sent us to whichever mainstream church was closest to where we living. I was baptized in a Presbyterian church, and went to Methodist, Congregational, Baptist and Episcopalian churches.I fell for the stories right from the beginning. I diligently memorised Bible verses - especially during Vacation Bible School in the summer. I was even an altar boy, and eventually taught Sunday school to the younger kids when I went to the Episcopal church. I never seriously doubted Christianity as a grew up, the only question in my mind was which denomination to follow. (Ironically, my brothers were less gullible. My younger brother has been an atheist all his life.)The only problem in all this was that I am Gay. I knew for sure by the time I was 12 and happily giving blowjobs to other boys. At first I didn't see a conflict with my faith, but as I memorised more and more Bible verses I started to suspect that God wouldn't really approve of the fun times I was having, and I started being more closeted. I didn't stop having sex - just the opposite, as I was a horny teenager - but I started feeling more and more guilty about my sexuality.Then, in my early 20s, I met a young woman who decided to “convert” me when she learned that I was Gay. We did get along well, and she was successful, to an extent. In my initial enthusiasm I proposed and we got married.The marriage only lasted five years, as our sex life petered out and neither of us was satisfied anymore. For our 5th anniversary we agreed to an amiable divorce and went our separate ways.My biggest problem was that I had become a lot more conservative/fundamentalist (Armstrong’s “Worldwide Church of God”) as our marriage fell apart. After the divorce I faced a real quandry. It was obvious to me that I wasn't cut out for straight sex, and I was convinced that being Gay was a mortal sin that would damn me to Hell. It didn't help that the AIDS epidemic was hitting the news about then, either.So I decided that my only alternative was to become celibate. For the next 30 years I was completely abstinent, other than masturbating once or twice a month - and even that was ruined for me, as I couldn't help fantasizing about men as I did the deed and then I would be racked with guilt as soon as I came. I prayed repeatedly for God to “take the gay away” and make me into the man He meant me to beAs the years went by I withdrew further and further, eventually cutting myself off from friends and no longer going out. Only my immediate family ever saw me, outside of work. I even stopped going to church as I came to resent those who I believed would despise me if they knew my secret. I stopped taking care of my health and put on weight, as I wanted to be unattractive to avoid temptation, and I had no desire to live a long life if it meant always being alone and unloved.So yes, I would say that religion has messed up my life. Even though I finally came to my senses a few years ago, 30 years of being a hermit has had it's toll on my psyche. I find it very hard to open up to guys without panicking and running. I am embarrassed and ashamed of my physical appearance and find it impossible to believe anyone could possibly want me, so I end up pushing guys away.Thanks to “religion”, I will very probably die alone and unloved.
I messed up when I e-filed my tax return. Should I wait for a rejection or start filling out the 1040X?
Wait for your tax return being processed then file an amended return. Amended returns take a few months to be processed. You may also get a letter from the IRS explaining you how to fix the issue. It all depends what you need to correct. The IRS doesn’t like amended returns .. lots of times they will ask for additional documents .. forms • payments ..Good Luck
Is it illegal for my boss to fill out the tax papers to tell them how much to take out?
It would be illegal for an employer to fill out a W-4 form for you.However, if you have not signed a W-4 form and given it to your employer, the employer is still required to withhold taxes. If I remember correctly they must do as if you'd filled out the form as single with 0 exemptions.If you want to change what your employer is withholding, you should be able to go to Internal Revenue Service, print out a W-4 form, fill it out and give it to your employer.If after that your withholding doesn't change in a reasonable time (I think they're allowed a couple of weeks), then talk to the IRS.
How can I fill up my own 1040 tax forms?
The 1040 Instructions will prstep-by-step instructions on how to prepare the 1040. IRS Publication 17 is also an important resource to use while preparing your 1040 return. You can prepare it online through the IRS website or through a software program. You can also prepare it by hand and mail it in, or you can see a professional tax preparer to assist you with preparing and filing your return.
How do I clear up my tax mess?
First off, this kind of thing happens to more people than you would imagine. Don't feel bad:  it's just the way it is. You are taking the positive step to fix things, and are to be congratulated for that.Secondly, let me address your last question:  your social security account has been credited for the earnings which were reported to them.  If you were paid as a W-2 worker, then your account has been credited, even though you have not filed your income tax returns.  If you were self employed, you have a problem, because the Social Security Administration has no record of your earnings until and unless you file a form SE with your return.Now, the important thing is to get started filing those returns.  My suggestion is to begin filing with the most recent returns.  Take the last 3 years:  2022. 2013, and 2012.  Get those done and filed as soon as possible.  Then do 2022 and file it.  At that point, you might wait to see what the IRS reaction is.  Sometimes they want all the past years, sometimes not.  If they have filed returns "in absentia" for you, you may want to file because they most likely filed giving you no credit for legitimate deductions you may have.  I would let a good accountant guide you in this path.As to refunds, you will only be entitled to the refunds for 2022 and 2013.  Two years past due and any refunds are forfeited. Sorry, makes no sense, and doesn't seem fair, but that's the law.  Your 2022 return was due 4/15/2013, two years later, 4/16/15  the statute ran for getting any refund back.Don't be scared that the IRS will be nasty.  They most likely will be accommodating and helpful.. after all they want the returns filed.  So, go find yourself a good accountant and get those returns done ASAP. May you have good luck and peace as you get things back on track.
How do you know that you have become an adult?
I've discussed this with many people and the answers have formed four clusters.People who have decided that they are adults. Most people I've met who are like this did it at a pretty young age. They are people who really wanted to be adults when they were kids -- or who felt like, even as kids, they were very mature or were old souls. When these people have kids, they immediately feel comfortable relating to their kids as adults. They're the kind of people who say things like, "It's not my job to be my kids' friend. It's my job to be their parent." They tend to like organizing things and making rules. They like dress codes at work, and they don't like it when people do "inappropriate" things. They like boundaries. Kid/adult is a boundary. People who had really traumatic childhood and were "forced to grow up too soon." These are the folks who say things like "I never really had a childhood." Some of them are sad about this. They would like to be able to play in the mud, but they can't let themselves go in that way. Others are fine with it. They feel that their early experiences strengthened them and are proud of being adults.People who felt like kids -- or didn't even think about the kid/adult distinction -- until, maybe even late in life, something very traumatic happened that forced them to be independent in a way they'd never had to be before. The classic (and somewhat sexist) example is the woman who goes from being "Daddy's litte girl" to "Hubby's little wife" -- and then suddenly her husband dies or leaves her, and she has to grow up fast. The key here is that her life utterly changed after a very specific cut-off date. People who don't understand the distinction between kids and adults and, no matter how old they are, never feel as if they have crossed some kind of line into adulthood. This has nothing to do with being immature in the traditional sense. Many of these people pay their bills, have successful relationships, have children, etc. They just feel a complete continuity with their childhood. They tend to be able to remember what it was like to be a kid, as if that was yesterday. And they don't think of themselves in that period as "the kid me." Just as a 32-year-old wouldn't think of himself last year as the 31-year-old me. They just think of themselves, at all ages, as "me."I'm in the last camp. I'm 46 and if something was supposed to happen, it never did. I moved away from home, got good jobs, got married, paid my taxes ... but "it" still never happened. I never had a time when I felt like "Yup. I'm an adult now." I don't know what that would feel like. I'm not an adult or a child. I'm just me.I used to work with children as a daycare and kindergarten teacher. Every once in a while, a parent would come in and see his kid doing something cute or naughty. He would wink at me or roll his eyes at me or smile at me as if to say, "Kids! Whatchagonna do?" And it always felt odd to me, as if the parent was trying to include me in an adult club that was separate from the kid club. That felt totally unnatural. I just thought of me, the parent and the kid as three people in the room together.
How can my employer charge me taxes when I didn't fill out any form (like W2, W4, or W9)?
**UPDATE** After my answer was viewed over 4,100 times without a single upvote, I revisited it to see where I might have gone wrong with it. Honestly, it seems like a reasonable answer: I explained what each of the forms asked about is for and even suggested getting further information from a licensed tax preparer. BUT, I’m thinking I missed the underlying concern of the querent with my answer. Now I’m reading that they don’t care so much about the forms as they do about the right or, more accurately, the obligation of their employer to withhold taxes at all.So let me revise my answer a bit…Your employer doesn’t charge you taxes - the government does. The government forces employers to withhold (or charge, as you put it) taxes from the earnings of their employees by threatening fines and even jail time for failing to do so (or for reclassifying them as independent contractors in order to avoid the withholding and matching requirements). Whether you fill out any forms or not, employers will withhold taxes because they don’t want to be fined or go to jail.Now the meta-question in the question is how can the government tax its citizen’s income? Well, that’s a big debate in America. Tax is the only way governments make money and they use that money to prservices for their constituency. Without funding, no federal or state or county program, or employee, would exist. But still, some people believe taxation is illegal, unjustified, and flat out wrong. They believe that free market forces should fund the military, the Coast Guard, Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Border Patrol, the FBI, CIA, DEA, FDA, USDA, USPS, the Federal Prison Complex, the National Park Service, the Interstate Highway System, air traffic control, and the Judiciary (just to name a few things). They even believe paying politicians for the work they do, like the President and Congress, is wrong.Others (luckily, most of us) appreciate paying taxes, even if they seem a bit steep at times. We’re happy to benefit from all the things our tax dollars buy us and we feel what we pay gives us back returns far greater than our investment. If you’re on the fence about this issue, consider how expensive health care is and how much you’re getting out of paying for it privately (out of your own paycheck). Same with your education or that of your children. Do you pay for private schools? Private colleges? Do you pay for private child care too? All expensive, right?Well what if we had to pay for private fire fighting? Or all mail had to be shipped via FedEx or UPS? Or if the cost of a plane ticket to anywhere doubled because we had to pay out-of-pocket for air traffic control? What about the military, border control and veterans? How much are you willing to pay out of every paycheck DIRECTLY to the department of defense AND veterans affairs? If we privatized the military, would we still be able to afford $30 billion dollar fighter jets? Who would pay to defend us?I bet people living paycheck to paycheck would be hard pressed to find extra money to pay for the military, when they’re already spending so much for teachers, schools, health care, local emergency response, food safety inspections, social workers, the criminal justice system, road repairs and construction, bridge inspection and maintenance, and natural disaster remediation (just to name a few things).Think about if all the national and local parks were privatized. Visiting one would cost as much or more than it does to go to Disneyland. Think about how much more food would cost if farmers weren’t subsidized and food wasn’t inspected for safety. Imagine how devastating a pandemic would be without the Center for Disease Control to monitor and mitigate illness outbreaks.We all take for granted the myriad of benefits we get from paying taxes. We may like to gripe and moan but taxes aren’t just for the public good, they’re for our own. (That rhymes!)**END OF UPDATE**W-9 forms are what you fill out to verify your identification, or citizenship status, for your employers. They have nothing to do with payroll taxes other than being the primary tool to from which to glean the correct spelling of your name and your Social Security number.W-2 forms are issued by employers to employees for whom they paid the required payroll taxes to the government on their behalf. The W-2 also details the amount of a person’s pay was sent to the government to fund their Social Security and Medicare accounts. W-2 forms are necessary for people when filing their personal income taxes so they can calculate if they under or overpaid.W-4 forms are filled out by employees to assure that the appropriate amount of pay is being withheld (and transferred on their behalf) by their employers to the government. If you don’t fill out a W-4 then your employer withholds the standard default amount for a single individual. You can update your W-4 at any time with your employer and you may want to when the size of your household changes.Even if you aren’t an employee (like you get paid without taxes being withheld for you) and are issued a 1099-MISC form instead of a W-2, you’re STILL responsible for paying your taxes as you earn that money - in no greater than quarterly installments. If you go over three months without paying taxes when you’re making money - whether your employer is withholding it and paying it on your behalf or you just made the money and no one took any taxes out for you - you’ll be fined and charged interest on your late tax payments.Talk with a licensed tax preparer and they can help you better understand what it all means. Good luck and happy tax season!
