Re: Explain US (California) taxes please!

Ian- that's a great rule of thumb - I usually tell my clients to use 35% (unless they live in NY, NJ, or CA in which case I might go to 40% just to be on the safe side) ;)

Re: Tax Rebate after emigrating

Just write to the tax office where you filed your P85 and explain the situation. Enclose the P45 copy, and a copy of the original P85. You should then be good to go!
