    I assumed you're working in the U.S. If you're getting 1099, you're screwed. You have to pay for all the taxes. Your employer is not responsible for paying any taxes for you. The income tax rate varies according to the amount of your annual income, your marital status and the number of dependents you claim.

    Let's say you are single and your annual income is around $24,000, you'll have to pay $730+15% of the amount over $7,300. That will be $3,235. It's just an estimate. For more information on tax rate, you can check http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/article/0,,id=133517,... But since you're on 1099, you can have itemized deduction so that you can pay a little less. If you want to pay less, you can think about opening an IRA account. That will help.

    Anyhow, a suggestion for you is to find out if your employer is willing to provide you with W2 instead of 1099.
