    That depends on how one filled out their W-4 form.

    The military would take out an amount that you indicate on your W4 tax withholding form. You could declare you got 4 dependents and they would not take any out. Of course at the end of the year when you do your taxes you would end up having to pay in all the due taxes that were not held out. They will take out about 8% for social security and you should have them take out 20% for your federal tax. That way you would most likely get some money back.

    It depends on what military force you are in.  In Canada, our net (take home) pay was about 60% of our gross pay, after taxes, pension fees, R&Q (rations, and quarters), and, and, and, ....

    The ENTIRE Defense Department budget is less than any of the top THREE welfare programs.

    The withholding rate for a member of the military is EXACTLY the same as for anyone else with the same income.

    Single with all deductions figure up to 20%. It all depends on your state as well and if you have to pay state income tax, if you do SGLI and if so how much, etc...  Remember the amount is monthly no per pay day
