b) Since our prior gross pay was $58k and current gross pay is $3,000 this is still under
the $100k mentioned in the problem above. Therefore, we just need to tax 6% on the
current gross pay amt. If the prior gross pay had been $98k, then we would only need to
tax 6% on the difference ($100k - $98k = $2k * 6%) but that's not the case for this
Social Sec. Tax = $3,000 - 6% = $180
Medicare Tax = $3,000 - 1.5% = $45
Federal Income Tax = $714
So...$3,000 - $180 - $45 - $714 = $2,061.00 is the net pay.
