Hourly Paycheck Calculator FAQs

How do I calculate the hourly rate?

First, multiply the hours worked each week by the number of weeks in a year. For instance 40 hours x 52 weeks = 2,080 hours. Next, divide the employee's annual salary by this number.

Let's say the employee makes $50,000 a year and works 40 hours a week, the hourly rate is $50,000 / 2,080 = $24.04.

How do I calculate taxes from a paycheck?

Add up all the assessed taxes, including Social Security, Medicare and the federal and state withholding information found on a W-4 form. Divide this number by the gross pay to determine the percentage of taxes taken out of a paycheck.

For instance if all the taxes add up to $500 and the gross pay is $2,000 then the tax percentage is $500 / $2,000 or 25% tax rate.

How do I convert a salary to an hourly wage?

Multiply the hourly wage by the number of hours worked each week. Then, multiply that number by 52, the total number of weeks in a year.

For example, if an employee makes $25 per hour and works 40 hours per week, the annual salary is 25 x 40 x 52 = $52,000.
