If you’re making $1,000 a week, your annual earnings would be $52k.
There are 52 weeks in a year, so this calculation is quite simple: you multiply 1000 by 52, resulting in $52k.
On this website, we assume that you’re working 40 hours a week and 52 weeks a year.
If you’re not taking any time off, that means you’ll be working for 2,080 hours per year.
If you’re taking time off for vacation, for example, your total number of work hours will be lower, and this will cause hourly pay to be somewhat different.
You can calculate your monthly salary by dividing your annual income by 12 since there are 12 months in a year, meaning your monthly salary is 52k divided by 12 is $4.333.
To learn what your daily pay is when you’re making $1,000 a week, simply divide the earnings by 5 (there are 5 working days in a week), resulting in $200 a day. Assuming you’re working 8 hours a day, you can easily calculate your hourly pay: 200 divided by 8 makes $25 per hour.
Converting to different time units
So let’s see how it is if we convert $1,000 in weekly earnings into other time units:
- Yearly salary: $1,000
- Annual salary: $52k (1000 multiplied by 52, the number of weeks in a year)
- Monthly salary: $4,333 (annual salary divided by 12, the number of months in a year)
- Biweekly salary: $2,000 (2 times $1,000, the weekly pay, or your annual income divided by 26 weeks)
- Daily salary: $200 (your weekly earnings divided by 5 or your hourly pay times 8)
- Hourly salary: $25 (your daily pay divided by 8 or your annual salary divided by the number of work hours in a year, 2080)

Is $1000 a week a good salary?
Many people ask us if a weekly income of $1,000 allows for a comfortable life in the US. Well, as with so many things, that entirely depends on where you live. Life in different states, cities, or even regions can come at extremely diverse costs.
There are areas where you’ll have to pay at least $1,400 a month in rent, while in other regions, $300-$400 in rent will give you a fine family home! And this example is just one of many that illustrate the large variances in the US.
So it all depends on where you’re making your money. Living in cities like San Francisco or New York comes at extremely high costs of living while, for example, living in a city like Omaha or Kansas City comes at a much lower cost.
So earning $1,000 a week will definitely not get you far in expensive cities and regions, while that sort of earnings will be pretty okay to lead a comfortable life in more affordable cities and regions.
So again, it all depends on the city or region where you live. Retired people that make 40k and live in some small Oklahoma town will be able to live fine, but if you’d live in certain areas in the Pacific Northwest, $120k annually will let you barely get by.
Income tax rates
In the U.S., you pay federal income tax and (in most states) state income tax. State income tax varies by state. It’s quite easy to check your state’s income tax rate online if you want to know your net salary,
There are nine (9) states that have no state-imposed income tax. These states are Washington State, Wyoming, Texas, Tennessee, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Florida, Alaska, and Nevada.
The U.S. federal income tax for individuals knows 7 rates. All rates apply to different income brackets, and the tax percentages range from 10 to 37.
In the U.S., we have a progressive tax code. This means that over the first income brackets, the tax percentages will be lower than over the higher income portions. To give you an example, in case you, as a single tax filer, are making 60k a year, you pay 10% on the first $9,875; 12% on the following $30,250; and 22% on the last portion, $19,874.
So if you make $60k a year and add the numbers, you’ll end up paying $8,989.78 in federal taxes, a rate of some 15 percent. This counts for federal income taxes, so you’ll also have to add your state’s income tax if you live in a state that imposes an income tax.
