I'm trying to understand taxes better to be smarter about keeping more of my hard earned commission checks. I've noticed commission gets taxed more as its supplemental income. Can someone help me understand this?
Does it make a difference in how commission is taxed if its with a regular paycheck or separate?
Should I be putting a higher percentage of my commission into my (unfortunately unmatched 401k)?
Thank you in advance - taxes always confuse me 🥴
