Times are tough all over, I get that. But WTF, man?
Some quick math: $394,000 minus
- 5% for the agent ($19,700) = $374,300
- 30% for the tax man ($118,200) = $256,100
- Child support @ $6,527/mo ($78,324) = $177,776
So that's roughly $175K after taxes, paying off your agent and child support. No doubt legal fees are eating up a chunk of that, and there's still rent and living expenses to consider, but if Elijah's having trouble making ends meet on the MLB minimum, he needs to reexamine his commitments.
Something just doesn't add up. Or to put it another way...
