I need a little help
Hi, I'm making a program that will calculate tax deductions for certain salaries and I need help on part of it. I need to know how to do this to a single value:
9.1% off the first $37,149 , +
12.1% off the next $36,422, +
12.4% off the next $46,496, +
12.7% off the amount over $120,796
However, sometimes the value may not be 120796 or greater, obviously, so I want to make it so, it will execute it accordingly. Thanks.

Have you made an attempt? If so, post what is not working for you, with relevant code.

So tell me, if I have a salary of $32,000 how much tax will you deduct and explain how you determined that.

Use a series of if statements to determine wether the cash amount you wish to apply tax to falls within certain conditons e.g if cash less than or equal to 37149 then do appropiate calculation.

Keep track of each deduction amount with a variable say called totalDeductions.
Here is some semi real code to look at:
Java Code:int totalDeductions=0; if(yearlyPay <= 37149){ // calculate tax deduction and add it to totalDeductions current amount // totalDeductions+=taxDeduction; } if(yearlyPay <= theNextAmount){ // calculations tax deduction and add it to totalDeductions current amount } // etc if statements for the other amounts

I'm not sure if that will work, but I will try it. You see, with this formula, there isn't really a next amount. It takes 9.1 percent off the first 37149, then 12.1 percent off the next 36422, so how do I account for the numbers in the middle. Do you think your code will do that? It doesn't look like it will to me, but I could be wrong.
