    Hey, congratulations on this very impressive salary growth rate! Remember that if you’re on track, and your income (modified AGI) is above a certain limit ($99,000 for 2007), you won’t be able to make a full contribution to your Roth IRA.

    Thank you, pfstock. I think you made a good point here. I have to be alert of my AGI since I have already contributed the max to my Roth IRA. However, I don’t expect my AGI to be over $99,000 for this year, because of expenses for my real estate property and self-employment.

    Wow, where do you work? A 21% increase in one year Way to go!

    You will reach 100K very soon keep it up

    That 80k/year is nothing in NYC. That’s like 30K here in Ohio.

    Definitely will try to do that. Aiming for 100K in 2008, 125K in 2009 and 150K in 2010. But having 150K in base salary is very difficult. If the numbers are in terms of gross income, they are achievable.

    I work in the IT software development business. They’re spending a lot of money in this industry now, so it gives me opportunity to make a decent salary. I think I’ll break 100K in total income for this year.
