About the BWCC
- The calculator will determine the anticipated net of a check as accurately as possible. However, due to the complexity in the calculation of some deductions, the net computed by the calculator is only an estimate. There may be a small difference (+- 5%) between the estimate from the calculator and an actual bi-weekly paycheck.
- The calculator will convert regular earnings only. Supplemental pay such as overtime, shift differential, stipends, etc. should not be included in the calculator.
- Amounts entered in the calculator should be positive (no negatives) and monthly values unless stated otherwise. The calculator will convert the monthly amounts into bi-weekly amounts.
- The BWCC computes Employment tax (OASDI and Medicare) as well as Federal and California State income tax rate. For employees working out of state, please contact Jeremy Henmi at [email protected].
- Data for input to the calculator should come from the employee’s Earning Statement - Payment Summary view. Steps to obtain the employees Payment Summary are included in the instructions.
