Nevada Paycheck Calculator

Our Nevada Paycheck Calculator converts your hourly wage to weekly, monthly, or annual earnings.

How to use this Nevada paycheck calculator

  1. Step one, enter your hourly pay.
  2. Step two, enter how many hours you work per week.
  3. Now, our paycheck calculator will show you how that translates to annual, monthly, or weekly earnings.

How does our Nevada paycheck calculator work?

If you get paid by the hour, it may be hard to understand how your hourly pay translates to earnings per month, per week, or year. For employees with a steady salary period (month, week, or biweekly), things are relatively uncomplicated. At the end of their work period, they will receive their paychecks, and by the end of the year, they will receive their tax forms.

For hourly workers, things are different, and to help these workers figure out how their hourly pay translates to monthly, weekly, or annual earnings, we designed this great paycheck calculator. Here’s how it works. The only thing you have to do is enter hourly pay and the number of hours you work each week. Now, our paycheck calculator shows you what that means in earnings per month, week, or year.

Time period Equation
Annual wage = hourly pay times
40 hours times 52 weeks
Monthly wage = annual pay divided by 12 months
Weekly wage = hourly pay times 40 hours

These results are generated by multiplying your base hourly pay by the number of hours, weeks, or months you work annually, assuming you work 40 hours per week.

Minimum Wage in Nevada

So the Nevada minimum wage is $9.50 (lower tier) or $10.50 per hour (higher tier).

For workers that make $9.50 an hour, this translates to $76.00 per day, $380.00 per week (at 40 work hours), $1646.67 per month, and $19,760.00 per year.

For workers that receive $10.50 an hour, this translates to $84.00 per day, $420.00 per week (at 40 work hours), $1820.00 per month, and $21,840.00 per year.

As stated before, not all Nevada employees are entitled to these minimum hourly wages. Some categories of workers are exempt from Nevada’s minimum pay regulations.

Nevada minimum wage exemptions

The following overview doesn’t include all of Nevada’s exempt worker groups, but it lists the main categories.

  • White-collar employees are usually exempt from Nevada’s minimum wage regulations.
  • Executive and administrative workers, professionals, outside salespeople, and some computer professionals may also be exempt, as are highly paid employees that earn $134k annually and independent contractors.
  • In Nevada, employees with disabilities may receive a subminimum wage when the employee works in a day training program that is exempt from the state’s minimum wage requirement.
  • Some domestic workers, like housekeepers and casual workers such as babysitters, may be exempt.

In Nevada, workers that put in more than 40 hours a week are entitled to one-half times their usual hourly wages, and this counts for both tiers, so then, their minimum hourly rate is $14.25 for workers that are offered health benefits and $15.75 for workers that are not offered health benefits.

Nevada law additionally provides overtime pay at one and one-half times the regular rate if an employee works over 8 hours in a 24-hour time frame.

What is work time?

Work time covers the hours during which workers are engaged in duties and/or tasks for employers. This includes all hours workers are paid or should receive pay for activities initiated and/or controlled by employers.

If a position involves traveling from customer to customer, to suppliers, or any other work-related travel, those hours are counted as work time. Regular commuting hours from home to work and vice versa are not counted as work time.
