1. Total = 0.06 * 16250 + 12 * 81.50 + 12 * 55 = 975 + 978 + 660 = 2613.

2. Answer:b.

3. 0.03 * 12800/12 = 32 / mo.

4. Tax = 0.04 * 20490 / 26 = 31.52.

I don't know how much to allow for the exemptions.

Where applicable, assume each exemption is worth $800.

3.)William Bennett earns $12,800 per year. He is paid 12 times per year and claims 1 exemption. His state taxes him at a 3% rate. How much tax is withheld per pay period?

a.)$128

b.)$12.80

c.)$30 -- correct answer --

1*800=800
