Ok. So, in California, what are the taxes like? I'm 13 years old so i have absolutely no clue about this and I need to know ASAP for a persuasive speech. So on average, approximately what percentage of income total do people pay on taxes? I'm asking about ON AVERAGE, so please don't say "it depends".

    there are no averages

    in Calif. you will have 1.2% withheld for SDI, 5.65% for FICA(7.65 in 2012)

    if you do not anticipate earning your standard deduction($5800 for 2011) you would not have any income tax withheld if you filed your W-4 as exempt

    And you do NOT have any averages for this purpose and time in your life about taxes for this purpose.

    When you would have 1 to spend in Ca. on a item the sales and use tax could be as much as .11 cents

    Hope that the above information is useful to you. 12/11/2011

    Tfhere is no average. Each person fills out a W4 according to their needs. Different percentages for different people.
