A double bodyweight squat (full squat), without any aids other than a belt, is a good number to initially shoot for.
You can also check this chart, it is based on a few guidelines, among them, the ones from Rippetoe
At your bodyweight, 350lbs would be a good number (advanced).
Lastly, if you are interested in going into powerlifting, check the results of the federation you want to go in. Check state championships and the first 5 places, and that would give you an eyeball figure to know what you should be shooting for for the near future.

There is no answer, because it is a trick question!
If you listen closely, the clue comes in the very first sentence:
"What is a good squat for a male that is ~145lb?"
145 lb male = paradox?637/390tng/615 - belt/wraps, best gym lifts.
600/370/600 - best competition lifts.
575/330/560 - best competition lifts at 181 raw.
