The self-employed tax rate is 15.3% up to $128,400 for self employed individuals (12.4% for social security, 2.9% for medicare) which can then be taken and deducted from your income when figuring out your gross income/how much you'll pay in income tax.View attachment 520447
From her latest round of questions on Ask.fm. Still won't believe her without her showing a bank statement.

Ugh. This really implies she doesn't pay taxes at all. Since YT doesn't deduct for them, as Amber is considered a contractor, she only ever would pay in. There is no "getting any back".
Assuming she's telling the truth (she's not) and she made $120,000 in the last year (she didn't), she would've been hit with $18,360 in self employment taxes. Taking that away from her income, we're left with $101,640 which would hit her with $18,504 in federal taxes, $5,615 in state taxes, and $915 in local taxes - or $43,394 in total taxes paid. That's assuming she didn't figure out how to deduct all of her shitty hauls and Cheesecake Factory trips as 'business expenses' and come up with a net loss, of course.
TL;DR: I'm sure you're making that money, Amber. I believe that as much as I believe you paid your taxes and I believe you will be a dainty 199 elbees someday
