Working the Problem:
\$515.00 per week
\$515.00 - \$37.50 (health insurance premium) = \$477.50
\$515.00 x .03 = \$15.45 (401K retirement deduction)
\$477.50 - \$15.45 = \$462.05
\$462.05 x .062 (social security tax) = \$28.6471 (rounded to \$28.65)
\$462.05 x .0145 (Medicare tax) = \$6.699725 (rounded to \$6.70)
