Soc Sec and Medi is 7,62%. Have to pay it. The new tax bracket% for single 31K is 10%, [FT 40 hours@ $15/hr]so about 60 a week withheld. About $3120 all year. At tax time in 2019, you'll take 12k off your 31k and owe tax on the 19k adjusted earnings. 10% is $1900, so you'll get a $1220 refund. Rather have that $1220 during the year? Claim Single 2 and they will take out about 60 less per week and you'll nearly break even at tax file time. WI tax rate is the same as SS/FICA, 7.65%.  To figure your actual per hour bring home, divide your take home pay by your hours worked number.
