In the tax overview above, we show the illustration for a monthly take home pay as a straight 1/12th of your annual income. Not all employers calculate income this way. Some employers calculate your monthly income and pay monthly Federal / State taxes by diving your total annual income by the number of days in a year, then multiplying that daily amount to provide a monthly salary that changes each month depending on how many days there are in the month (28,29,30 or 31).
If your employer calculates you monthly salary in this way, the below calculator illustrates the amounts you should expect to pay in Federal Tax, State Tax, Medicare, Social Security and so on. The Tax and Take home example below for an annual salary of $20,000.00 is basically like a line by line payslip example.
|Month (2020 days in month)||Income||Tax Deferred||Student loan interest deduction||Cafeteria / Other||Exemptions||Taxable Income||Federal tax||State Tax||Social Security||Medicare||Take home|
