I am wokring under H1B as a Java Developer for a while. While filing for tax returns, I am curious to know what's the tax % that average unmarried H1B workers are paying?

I find that there are 3 taxes that Govt gets - one from employee (me), another from my employer and another is employment tax (???). Here assume that the employee is getting remuneration in hourly basis rather than yearly salary.

* What's the stanadard tax % for cat - A? For married and for unmarried workers if the income is equivalent to 60k/year?
* How much % the employer pays as their income tax from H1B worker's share?
* Who pays the employment tax? Employer or employee?
* What's the market rate of sharing for hourly basis income? 80-20, 75-25 or 70-30?

I am looking forward to your comments to clarify my confusions
