Let's say you earn $20 per hour, work 40 regular hours each week, and have 5 overtime hours per week with an overtime rate of 1.5. You also receive a $2,000 annual bonus and work 52 weeks a year.

**Weekly Gross Income:**Weekly Gross Income = (20 * 40) + (20 * 1.5 * 5) = 800 + 150 = 950

**Annual Gross Income (excluding additional income):**Annual Gross Income (excluding additional income) = 950 * 52 = 49,400

**Total Annual Gross Income:**Total Annual Gross Income = 49,400 + 2,000 = 51,400

**Facts:**

**Overtime Pay:**Overtime pay is usually calculated at a higher rate than regular hours. Commonly, this is time and a half (1.5 times the regular hourly rate), but it can vary by company and jurisdiction.

**Annual Bonus:**Additional income like bonuses can significantly affect your total annual earnings. Always include these in your total income calculations for a complete picture.

**Work Weeks:**The standard number of weeks worked per year is 52, but this can be adjusted based on vacation, unpaid leave, or other factors.

**FAQ:**

**What if I don’t have overtime hours?**

Simply enter 0 for Overtime Hours Worked per Week and omit the Overtime Rate. Your Weekly Gross Income will be calculated based only on regular hours.

**How should I handle varying overtime rates?**

If your overtime rate changes, you can adjust it in the formula as needed. Ensure that you use the correct rate for each applicable period.

**What if I receive multiple bonuses throughout the year?**

Add all bonuses together to get your total Annual Bonus or Additional Income. This total should be used in the final calculation of Total Annual Gross Income.

**How do I adjust the number of weeks worked if I have unpaid time off?**

Adjust the Weeks Worked per Year input to reflect the actual number of weeks you worked. For example, if you took two weeks off, use 50 instead of 52.
