September 2009 Survey Total

October 1st, 2009 at 04:36 pm

I am a physician and have the opportunity to do many online (and occasional in-person) surveys and market research programs. They can be fairly quick and easy or they can be quite long, boring and tedious, but in either case, they pay quite well, on the order of $100/hour or more sometimes. Here in my blog, I report the income I received during the month from doing surveys. It is not the amount generated during the month as there is a lag of several weeks between survey and payment.

For the month of September, I collected $428. I'm quite pleased with that. If you have been following my blog, you'll know that the past few months I had been slacking off and not doing all the surveys I got offered. No reason. Just laziness. So in August I only made $171. In July, I made $160. September was my best month since June (actually $2 more than June). I'm planning to stay on track doing what comes my way and keep the monthly total up over the $400 mark.

    That is a great job - unless it rolls you over into a higher tax bracket??

    Doesn't affect my tax bracket. Even if it did, so what? Taxes are tiered. Only the income over a certain amount would be taxed at the highest rate. My father (an accountant) always said it is better to earn the money and pay the taxes.

    Do you do anything specific with the survey dollars? Just wondering if they are targeted for a particular goal or just go into a general fund.

  5. disneysteve Says:

    No, Kelly. Nothing special. I just put the money in the bank with everything else.
