From Louise: So I got a paycheck for 89.02 they took out in deductions 15.69.
I want to know the percentage they are taking out so that I can figure my take home pay each week before I get it. So I know what to expect for pay each week so I can budget my bills from now on a weekly basis. If I know the percentage than I can just figure out the percentage through how many hours in the week I worked and multiply my gross pay and know what my take home will be Answered by Penny Nom.
