try this:

according to this calculation 50K would give you 3K net per month
#paddy on May 04, 2014 :
I've been given an offer of a job for 50.000E annual with taxes. I believe that the net salary would be around 3.500E, is this accurate?
Is 3.500E per month a good salary to live a good life in Karlsruhe? I checked on the internet and a studio apartment rent is 400 to 500 euro. I would believe that about 200-300 euro is the monthly food expenses and another 200 for basic utilities. So 1000 euro per month for all that would be enough, right?
thanks for any input here
