Answer #1

**Answer a:**

Monthly Gross Wages = $2,900.00

Pay period 2017 Allowance Amount Monthly 337.50

Sophie claims two allowances

Hence Allowance amount = $337.50 * 2 = $675

Gross Wages - Allowances = $2,900 - $675 =$2,225

Using the percentage method to calculate the amount of Sophie's withholding for a monthly pay period. Sophie's withholding = $77.70 plus 15% of amount over $969 = $77.70 + 15% * ($2,225 - $969) = $266.10

**Using the percentage method to calculate the amount of
Sophie's withholding for a monthly pay period. Sophie's withholding
= $266.10**

**Answer b:**

**Filing status: Single**

**Monthly wages**

**Two allowances**

**Using the wage bracket method to determine the amount of
Sophie's withholding for the same period for monthly salary of
$2,900 with two allowances = $266**
