Salary Paycheck Calculator Guide

How to Calculate Net Income

Subtract your employee’s voluntary deductions and retirement contributions from his or her gross income to determine the taxable income. Then, subtract what the individual owes in taxes (federal, state and local) from the taxable income to determine the net income.

How to Calculate Annual Income

To calculate an annual salary, multiply the gross pay (before tax deductions) by the number of pay periods per year. For example, if an employee is paid $1,500 per week, his or her annual income would be 1,500 x 52 = $78,000.

How to Calculate Taxes Taken Out of a Paycheck

Divide the sum of all assessed taxes by the employee’s gross pay to determine the percentage of taxes deducted from a paycheck. Taxes can include FICA taxes (Medicare and Social Security), as well as federal and state withholding information found on a W-4.
