FINANCIAL LITERACY - The Money Trail - Part 12 - Payroll & Deductions, 2nd Ed – students learn the latest requirements that employers must follow when preparing employee paychecks. For example, employers are required by law to deduct certain payroll taxes from the gross earnings of their employees. These taxes include federal income taxes, Social Security tax, and Medicare tax. In many states additional income taxes are withheld. Students learn to prepare a payroll register, calculate gross pay, read tax tables, compute taxes, determine net pay, and write payroll checks. Activities 1 & 2 with answer keys include: calculating gross pay; reading weekly and bi-weekly tax tables, prepare a payroll register and write paychecks. Activity #3 (Bonus) is added to the edition where students prepare a payroll register using the Percentage Method, and use Publication 15 that is found at irs.com. Students will compare and evaluate Activity #3 results to the Activity #2 results.
