# Typical Paycheck at Care

For those of you who work for Care, what’s a typical paycheck after working 4 10s look like? Assuming you’re not getting a crazy amount of OT.

Your hourly rate = C (will use \$15/hour for example only)
(4)(10) = 40 hours worked.
15 x 40 = 600

So take this formula, and instead of using 15, insert YOUR hourly rate.

Once you have that value (600 in this example), then calculate your deductions and withholding. ONLY YOU know how you completed your W-4 when hired. Any exemptions, dependents, etc...so you would need to share that or know that.

Then you also need to go to the State website and find out what your tax is...subtract that.
Then go to the IRS site where they have nifty calculators and you input values and they give you a number.

After all that, you will then see what your NET income will be.

If this is in California, then do you earn 2 hours of overtime per day working a 10?
If so, then the above formula needs to be adjust slightly....however, if you leave it as it and just budget with that under estimate, you will quickly accumulate some extra cash in the bank and do yourself a favor.

But if you need to know exactly, adjust the formula to:

15 x 40 = 600
22.50 x 8 = 780
