Use IF functions to calculate the regular pay and overtime pay in columns E and F based on a regular 40-hour workweek. Be sure to use the appropriate absolute or mixed cell references. Pay overtime only for overtime hours. Note employees receive 1.5 their hourly wage for overtime hours worked. Calculate the gross pay in cell G5 based on the regular and overtime pay. Spencer’s regular pay is $440. With five overtime hours, Spencer’s overtime pay is $82.50.
Create a formula in cell H5 to calculate the taxable pay. Multiply the number of dependents by the deduction per dependent and subtract that from the gross pay. With two dependents, Spencer’s taxable pay is $422.50.
Insert a VLOOKUP function in cell I5 to identify and calculate the federal withholding tax. With a taxable pay of $422.50, Spencer’s tax rate is 25% and the withholding tax is $105.63. The VLOOKUP function returns the applicable tax rate, which you must then multiply by the taxable pay.
Calculate FICA in cell J5 based on gross pay and the FICA rate, and calculate the net pay in cell K5. Copy all formulas down their respective columns. Be sure to preserve the existing formatting in the document. Based on the hours Spencer worked he paid $39.97 to FICA and had a weekly net pay of $376.90
Use Quick Analysis tools to calculate the total regular pay, overtime pay, gross pay, taxable pay, withholding tax, FICA, and net pay on row 17. (On a Mac, this step must be completed using the AutoSum feature on the ribbon.)
Apply Accounting Number Format to the range C5:C16. Apply Accounting Number Format to the first row of monetary data and to the total row. Apply the Comma style to the monetary values for the other employees.
Insert appropriate functions to calculate the average, highest, and lowest values in the Summary Statistics area (the range I24:K26) of the worksheet. Format the # of hours calculations as Number format with one decimal and the remaining calculations with Accounting Number Format.
Use the XLOOKUP function to look up the employee name in cell A20 (Wagner) in the payroll data and return the specified information in row 20. Ensure the return array includes overtime pay, gross pay, taxable pay, federal tax, FICA and net pay.
