How to Determine Your Gross Annual Salary

Save

Your gross annual salary is the sum total of all income for the year before the withholding of federal and state income taxes, Social Security taxes and any other deduction from your wages. A person needing to identify gross annual wages may do so in any of several ways. To project what your gross wages for the year will be before the end of the year requires the assumption that your weekly, biweekly or monthly pay will remain unchanged at least through the last day of the current year.

Things You'll Need

  • Recent paycheck
  • Calculator

Locate a recent paycheck stub. This will have all of the information that you need to be able to project your gross annual salary.

Find the amount listed on your check stub as gross pay.

Multiply the gross pay shown on the check stub by 12 if you are paid monthly. The result is your gross annual pay.

Multiply the gross pay shown on the check stub by 26 if you are paid biweekly. The product is your gross annual pay.

Multiply the gross pay reflected on the check stub by 52 if you are paid weekly to determine your annualized gross pay.

Tips & Warnings

  • Along with gross pay and net pay for the most recent pay period, most employers include year-to-date gross pay and year-to-date net pay on check stubs.
