Frank Flynn is the payroll manager for Powlus Supply Company

Frank Flynn is the payroll manager for Powlus Supply Company.  During the budgeting process, Sam Kinder, director of finance, asked Flynn to arrive at a set percentage that could be applied to each budgeted salary figure to cover the additional cost that will be incurred by Powlus Supply for each employee.  After some discussion, it was determined that the best way to compute this percentage would be to base these additional costs of payroll on the average salary paid by the company.

Kinder want this additional payroll cost percentage to cover payroll taxes (FICA, FUTA and SUTA) and other payroll costs covered by the company (Workers' Compensation expense, health insurance costs, and vacation pay). 

Flynn gathers the following information in order to complete the analysis:

Average annual salary......................................$24,000

FICA rates.............................................  6.2% & 1.45%

FUTA...............................................0.8% on 1st $7,000

SUTA.............................................3.3% on 1st $10,000

Workers' compensation costs....$0.97 per $100 of payroll

Health Insurance costs........................$75.15 per month

Vacation pay earned............2 wks pad earned each year

to be used in following year

Compare the percentage that can be used in the budget.
