FIRECalc and taxes

IS the amount of Spending supposed to be entered as a pretax value? That is if we spend $50,000 a year do I enter $50000, or do I assume some tax rate of like 20% and therefore enter $62500 for the amount of yearly "spending?"

The higher amount. You have to include taxes in the withdrawal amount that you give FIRECalc.
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.
