Sandpoint, ID - Living costs?

Ok so i just got a job for a software engineering job for a company as a contractor. Their office is into Sandpoint, ID and they asked me if i wanted to go up there this summer for an internship. Currently i live into San Diego, CA and i live with my parents (im 19) so i never lived on my own... I really want to go up there because i heard that the taxes into ID isn't all that bad, especially compared to CA. The pay isn't as bad as it can get, i get $10 an hour, 8 hours a day 5 days a week. I calculated that i will earn approximately $1600 a month UNTAXED. I have some things i need answered before i go up there. What is the taxes like up there? I heard approximately 20% which is a lot cheaper than CA i guess. What about other living costs? Looking on craigslist (only 17 results for in Sandpoint, ID) 1 bedroom apartments are approximately $300-400 a month and 1 bedroom and some 2 bedroom houses (which i don't need a 2 bed) are approximately $400+. Estimating that i earn $1600 a month UNTAXED with the basic utilities: electric, gas, sewer, water, trash. If i was to take out the taxes of my checks (my work doesn't take out taxes, they leave it up to me) would i be able to survive with the bare necessities up there? Also what if i also had Internet, would i be able to survive with that added to the list of expenses? Really need your help!

First, you are wrong about the taxes, every dime you earn is taxed, you simply are responsible to pay them, not your employer. You will end up in prison on Income Tax Evasion if you do not pay your taxes... More
