What does gross salary mean
Gross and Net Salary - What's the Difference?
Both terms, "gross" and "net", have their origins in Italian. Net means something like clean and beautiful looking, gross means raw and unclean. The gross salary is the total amount before taxes and social security contributions are deducted. What remains after they are deducted is the net salary that is paid out.
Net salary + taxes + social security contributions = gross salary
The gross salary includes all taxes and social security contributions. These include wage tax, the solidarity surcharge and church tax. The gross salary also includes social security contributions such as pension, health and unemployment insurance as well as long-term care insurance. If you subtract all these taxes from the gross salary, you get the net salary.

The amount of tax depends on the salary and tax class
Taxes and social contributions are not regulated uniformly for every person. They sometimes depend on the level of income. In addition, the tax bracket plays a role in the amount of the net wage. Income tax, solidarity surcharge and church tax are determined depending on the respective tax class. This in turn depends on whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed and whether you have children in the household.
