Salary Calculators and Wizards

Link to financial and salary calculators and wizards below. Includes city cost of living comparison and relocation; IRA, 401(k) and retirement planning; paycheck annual salary, and hourly and gross pay; potential future salary; W-4 Form allowances and income tax; loan, mortgage and amortization; investment and savings; and other financial and salary calculators.

Many free salary calculators and wizards are little more than gimmicks to attract Web site traffic. Before you take the results of a free salary calculator or wizard seriously, read about the methodology used to collect the data.

The most reliable data is collected scientifically from employers or data-collection organizations, at least once per year.

If the methodology is not offered or seems unscientific (e.g., collected randomly from volunteer job seekers), then don't take the results too seriously.

WorldatWork, a nonprofit professional association, sets the standards for collecting salary data. So, any salary calculator or wizard that adheres to its standards is likely more reliable than one that doesn't. See also Salary Surveys.
