General Calculator Guidelines
The Travel Nursing Paycheck Calculator is a great way to estimate how much you will make on each travel assignment by inputing data given to you by your recruiter. While it is very accurate, there are many factors that can affect the outcome. The calculator assumes you are claiming yourself as an independent and averages state income taxes. Claiming more dependents and living in a state that does not have an income tax or has a very high income tax will affect the outcome. The calculator also assumes you have a tax home. Not having a tax home will greatly affect the outcome. It is a great tool to compare assignments and estimate your hourly rate, weekly pay, and total contract income. Enjoy!
