The net pay for John Jansen is \$2894

Explanation:

For calculating the net pay for John Jansen we have to subtract all the FICA taxes and federal income taxes and also state income taxes, with authorized voluntary deductions also being subtracted from the gross earnings.

Given information - Gross earning = \$4000

FICA taxes = 7.65%

Federal income taxes = \$675

State income taxes = 3%

Authorized voluntary deductions = \$5

One important to remember here is that FICA taxes and State taxes would be calculated on the gross earnings of John

FICA taxes = 7.65% of \$4000

=.0765 x \$4000

= \$306

State taxes = 3% of \$4000

=.03 x \$4000

= \$120

NET PAY = gross earnings - FICA tax - state tax - federal income tax -

authorized voluntary deduction

= \$4000 - \$306 - \$120 - \$675 - \$5

= \$2894
