• The Federal Minimum Wage is \$7.25 per hour. \$7.25 X 45 = \$326.45 So, going by what you say, if a person earns \$326.45 or less per week then 15% of their total earnings may be deducted from the total as tax withholdings (\$326.45 X .15 = \$48.94) from earned hourly pay of \$326.45 less withholdings of \$48.94 your pay check should be \$277.51 - The IRS definition of disposable earnings is: "The amount of income left to an individual after taxes have been paid, available for spending and saving." So, going by what you say, if a person earns \$560.00 per week, 15% of that would be \$84.00 leaving a disposable income of \$476. \$476 exceeds the FMW by \$233.55 so the withholdings would be the LESSER of \$233.55 as compared to \$84.00, so your pay check would be \$476.00 (\$560 -84 = \$476) - I'm thinking there may be a flaw in your question as \$84 per week will not pay Federal and State taxes on \$560 weekly income for a single person with no deductions.
