    gross or net - please help

    Hi, I have a quick question and would appreciate your help.

    What is the difference between these two sentences:

    каков средний месячный доход вашей семьи до вычета налогов?
    каков средний месячный доход вашей семьи без вычета налогов?

    Are they both asking about gross monthly income?

    Thanks a lot for your help on this)

    I think the both mean the same:what is monthly income of your family before (without) taxation.
    Could you please occasionally correct my stupid errors!

    Yes.

    What is your family's gross monthly income (before tax deduction)?

    Not net income.
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    They are asking about your monthly income before and after taxes are deducted. That is pretty much gross and net, isn't it?

    They are asking about your monthly income before and after taxes are deducted.
    No. They are asking the same thing.

    Here's the literal translation:

    до вычета налогов = before tax deduction
    без вычета налогов = without tax deduction

    после вычета налогов = after tax deduction
    с вычетом налогов = with tax deduction
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.
