Think your computer tech is a con-artist at $75/hour.   Current Federal business tax rate for business’s who make over $100,000 per year but not more than $399,999 is 39% this is the Bush reduced tax cut rate. This is $29.25 for your federal government PER HOUR A BUSINESS BILLS.

Leaving only $45.75 per hour charged not worked for the business owner.

My state of New Mexico Business Tax Rate for Business who earn over $500,000 is 4.8%. This is $3.60
Leaving only $42.15 per hour charged not worked.

$42.15 per hour is what we earn BEFORE personal taxation.

Federal Personal Income tax rate is 36% of $42.15 This is and additional $15.17 per hour billed for the government because for some silly reason business owners may actually WANT to take some money home. Now the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is making $44.42 for every hour I bill at $75.00

Leaving only $26.97 per hour billed not per hour worked.
New Mexico personal income tax rate is 4.9% this is $2.06

Average time to clean a virus from a computer takes 9 hours.

This is equals $2.02 per hour WORKED not billed.

We pay 100% of our healthcare out of our $2.02 per hour.

Sales tax equals 7.187% This is $5.39 For a total of $80.39

State and local government are making $6.91 for every hour I work for a total of $62.18 for every hour I bill.
Taxing a business doesn’t mean you didn’t pay the taxes. Please keep in mind this is simplified and doesn’t show any actual business expenses we incur, rent, power, gas, consumables damage and theft. Licensing or time spent educating ourselves to be a proper repair facility all of those expenses come from my greedy $2.02 per hour.

The government actually thinks is deserves $62 for $75 I bill. After all I do so little in comparison to them I should only earn $13 I am evil greedy and handing $100,000’s of dollars annually.

  1. Our business model is unique because of China cheating. This forces us to flat rate our hours because cost of repair will exceed cost to replace and the profit on new computers is under $20 gross to the business and the cost to the customer being 300% higher than the repair.

    A plumber or electrician would be grossing $18 per hour on direct hour bids and from that they pay labor costs directly to employee’s which averages $15 in cost to business but on $10 per hour to the help because of the governement cost of the “privelage” of hiring employee’s.
