Calculate Payroll

An employee earns $32 per hour and 1.75 times that rate for all hours in excess of 40 hours per week. Assume that the employee worked 55 hours during the week, and that the gross pay prior to the current week totaled $46,400. Assume further that the social security tax rate was 6.0%, the Medicare tax rate was 1.5%, and federal income tax to be withheld was $509.

**a.** Determine the gross pay for the week.

If applicable, round your final answer to two decimal places.

**b.** Determine the net pay for the week.

Answer #1

a) Gross pay :[55*32] regular pay + [(55- 40)*32*1.75]

1760+ 840

2600

b)Social security tax and medicare tax : 2600 * (6%+ 1.5%)

2600 * 7.5%

= 195

Total witholdings = 195+509 = 704

net pay = gross pay - total witholdings

= 2600 - 704

= $ 1896
