Paycheck Calculator Download

If you have Microsoft Excel (Macintosh or PC) or a spreadsheet software application that can read an XLS file, you can download a spreadsheet that will do paycheck calculations. This may be useful to you if you are considering changing your Federal or State tax withholding, deferred compensation, or tax sheltered annuity amounts.

If you are having difficulty viewing the input calculation screen, press and hold the "Ctrl" key then tap the F10 key to "maximize" the viewing screen.  For a full screen view of the Excel file double click the title bar area.

Personnel/Payroll Services Division has updated the Paycheck Calculators on the SCO website.  The three new calculators allow departments to calculate paychecks for Monthly, Semi-Monthly and Bi-Weekly in one California State Tax calculator, which can also be used for out of state employees with no state taxes (complete Additional Exemptions State with 99).  Additionally, there are two new Paycheck Calculators that compute paychecks for out of state employees in Illinois and New York.
