This is a common question on Job Applications. The best answer is to put what you would like to make in the position for which you are applying while keeping that desired amount in the realistic offering of that position.

This is always a difficult question to answer. Providing you have done your research thoroughly on both the company and the actule role, it should be simpler to come up with a reasonable salary request.

It very much depends on how and when in the interview the questions about salary are asked. If you feel you are in a good negotiating position you may want to say something like: "your company has a reputation for fair remuneration. I don't think salary will be a problem. I would like to ask you some additional questions about what would be expected in this position".

Usually this question is asked during an interview or application when a company wants to see what your expectations are for pay. The company already has a range in mind. If you give a figure too low, you could risk showing that your work may not be worth the money. If you give a figure too high, you may be setting unrealistic expectations, thereby getting turned down for job. The best approach is to research online or with others who are currently doing the job to get an idea of what salary is typical. If you've done the job for many years before, aim high on that range. If it's all new to you, aim for the middle (they then can always offer a little less and ask you to prove your worth or work your way up).

How should you fill in Expected Salary on a job application?

Tell the truth. Understand that human resource folks can research information for any major city in the country, and international. Put your base salary. If the application asks for bonuse percentages, put the average that you have received during your stay there, not the maximum you received one time. If your salary doesn't show a consistent upward growth in salary, be able to explain if asked.
