So you're not salaried, i.e., your hours and wages vary from week to week? Take however long you've been working and figure out what that works out to over a year. In other words, add up your gross pay so far, divide that by the number of weeks you've worked, then multiply that by 52 weeks.

.

Let's say you've worked 5 weeks and your gross pay has been:

$500

$400

$700

$450

$675

.

That adds up to $2725. Divide that by 5 and you get $545. Multiply that by 52: $28,340. That's an estimate of your yearly gross pay.

Gross pay means before taxes and anything has been deducted from a check. Net pay is the balance remaining after all deductions are taken out. Annual pay means yearly.

Gross pay means before taxes, when "nothing"  has been deducted.
