how to find deductions

The Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) requires that your employer deduct a total of 7.65 percent from your paycheck for Social Security and Medicare tax purposes. A Social Security rate of 6.2 percent is deducted on the first $90,000 you earn. A Medicare rate of 1.45 percent is deducted from all your earnings.

Michaela Jordan is a tax lawyer who earns $132,000 per year and

is paid at the end of every month. What is the combined amount withheld from her September paycheck for Social Security and Medicare?
