**Weekly Gross Income Calculation:**Weekly Gross Income = (Hourly Wage * Regular Hours Worked per Week) + (Hourly Wage * Overtime Rate * Overtime Hours Worked per Week)**Annual Gross Income Calculation:**Annual Gross Income = Weekly Gross Income * Weeks Worked per Year

**Step-by-Step Guide:**

**Enter Your Hourly Wage:**Input your regular hourly wage. For example, if you earn $20 per hour, enter "20".

**Input Regular Hours Worked per Week:**Enter the total number of regular hours you work each week. For example, if you work 40 hours per week, enter "40".

**Enter Overtime Hours Worked per Week:**Input the number of overtime hours you work each week. For example, if you work 10 hours of overtime per week, enter "10".

**Input Your Overtime Rate:**Enter the rate at which overtime is paid, expressed as a multiple of your regular hourly wage. For example, if overtime is paid at time and a half, enter "1.5".

**Enter Weeks Worked per Year:**Input the number of weeks you work in a year. This is typically 52 weeks, but adjust if you work fewer weeks. Enter "52" if applicable.

**Calculate Annual Gross Income:**Multiply your weekly gross income by the number of weeks worked per year: Annual Gross Income = Weekly Gross Income * Weeks Worked per Year For example: Annual Gross Income = 1100 * 52 = 57200 Your annual gross income is $57,200.

**FAQ:**

**What if I work part-time or have a fluctuating schedule?**

You can adjust the number of regular and overtime hours to reflect your actual work pattern. If your schedule varies, use an average number of hours worked per week for more accurate results.

**How is overtime pay different from regular pay?**

Overtime pay is usually calculated at a higher rate than regular pay, often time and a half or double time, depending on company policy and labor laws.

**Can I use this calculator if I’m paid on a salary basis?**

This calculator is designed for hourly workers. If you're salaried, your gross income would not change based on hours worked, so you would not need to account for overtime in this manner.

**What if I receive additional types of compensation?**

This calculator only accounts for regular and overtime pay. Additional compensation like bonuses or commissions would need to be calculated separately.
