  • gross pay is exactly what you earned.

    net pay is your take home pay (the amount of gross pay left after taxes and deductions)

  • The total gross pay is the nice amount you see you have earned for the paycheck. It is dated from the previous paycheck to this paycheck. It is normally in a column which lists the gross amount for each and every paycheck you receive.

    The net pay is the amount you are allowed to receive once you deposit the paycheck.

    This is less the deductions from the gross pay. There are pre=tax deductions, and post=tax deductions. Savings plans, such as 401K have pretax deductions, where the amount is deducted from the gross pay before taxes are calculated, therefore allowing the pretax deductions to accumulate savings faster. There are the federal and state taxes. There are healthcare deductions, and life=insurance deductions. Almost all these deductions are optional, except the federal taxes and the state taxes, the Medicare taxes, and some taxes as required by the state. Also, the deductions can fluctuate according to the amount of dependents claimed on the persons W=2 form at the beginning of employment.There may be federal insurance taxes. There are voluntary contributions which can be deducted from the gross pay. Once all these deductions have been taken from the gross pay, the remaining amount is the net pay.
