Gross income before income tax.

Neither term is really appropriate. Using the IRS terminology, they will look at "total income" from a 1040 or 1040A tax return, or "adjusted gross income" from a 1040EZ tax return.

If you're a regular employee who receives an hourly wage or weekly salary then the gross earnings on your W2 usually end up being the same as the numbers on the tax return forms I mentioned above. If you're self-employed or a business owner then the numbers on the tax return forms will usually be whatever profit was carried over from your Schedule C.

Your current income is your gross pay. For example if you are paid by the hour and work 40 hours a week, multiply the gross hourly times 40 and multiply that number by 52 weeks. The shortcut is to multiply hourly by 2080 hours in 52 week year. If you only work 32 hours, adjust. If you have an annual salary, that's your current income.

When you provide a tax return, it may or may not reflect your current income but when it's looked at, the important number on a 1040 form is line 22,(Total Income) and on a 1040EZ, it's "Adjusted Gross Income".

Sometimes the numbers are the same and sometimes they're not. Line 22 rules either way.
