# How do I Calculate my Paycheck?

## Answer

You can calculate your paycheck by taking the number of hours you work each week and multiply that by your hourly rate of pay. This gives you your gross pay before taxes. Then you can take out the percentage of taxes based on how you claim exemptions to give you your net pay.

You can determine the amount of your paycheck by multiplying the total number of hours you worked by your hourly wage. From that total figure out how much Medicare and Social Security will be taken out. (Medicare is 6.2% of your gross, Social Security is 1.45% of your gross). Subtract both of those from your gross amount. Then you need to find out how much your state (if applicable) and your federal tax will be. There are several charts available online that will help you with this. Subtract those numbers from the number you got after subtracting the Medicare and Social Security tax and you will have your net or take home pay.
