I found an outlet in my house that has two romexes coming in. Each cable has a red, black and neutral (and ground, but no issue there). The red and black are on separate circuit breakers. The two reds are tied together and on the top brass screw. The two blacks are tied together on the bottom brass screw. The tab between the two has been removed. The two neutrals are each screwed into the outlet on the proper side, tab intact. Not sure if the reason for this is a switched outlet, but I don't think it matters. Is it proper to have two separate circuits in an outlet that share the neutral? The outlet is properly grounded.
