How much should I earn in USA to live well?

My company is talking with me to go work in USA.
How much should I earn in USA to live well?
I am married and have 3 children and maybe I will stay in Ohio
How much we need to spend in food, gas, phone, water, internet, rent, pay a car, insurance, health care, groceries and other stuff?

How much I will pay in taxes if they are offering 4,000 at month?

┬┐This income is enough if I will pay rent and all my children are going to school?

Thanks in advance

while every state is different and each has their own taxes and utilities cost. but 4000 is a good income. some people make more. so many make less.

food.. family of 5,.. 4-500
gas.. for the car or to heat house?
car gas is less than $3 a gallon, house gas can vary on time of year. $10-100
phone,.. house phone or cell phone? cell average is 50-75
water is around 50
internet 40 for decent service (plus cable package with phone is 120-145)
rent, again can vary so much. apt, or house. 4-5 room. 900-1500
a car payment is usually between 3-400
insurance for the car depend on your driving 50-100
health care is insane lets hope you get it from work. you will do a co-pay 60-120 each vist.

taxes again.all depends. about 1/3 your pay goes to taxes. but you can claim you dependents at tax time. we always get a nice check back.

it really is hard to guess as some places will be high cost while others are low cost. and they might even be right accost the street from each other. over all 4000 a month makes 36K a year. you will be considered middle class. you will make enough to survive but not enough to retire in the Hampton’s

    Well it’s not what you earn, it’s what you do with money when they pay you. In USA you can keep the cost very low on anything. Unlike most country, high taxes, high price, and limit earning. Also be sure you save your money when you earn the money because you may lose your job. You still have money in bank to make living without any jobs for 5 years if you want to.

    that’s double what my mom makes…and with both parents working my family of four is fine. If your wife is working you all will be ok. Middle class, but decent home and food on the table.
