Its been a while since I've done this but this is how I would answer it

April 2010 - March 2011

So that is 3 months from the first year. 17400/12*3 = 4350
9 months from the following year. 19440/12*9 = 14580
Salary for the year = 18930

Bonus is taxed on the year it was recieved, so it would be 876

Commision, I guess would be 5% of 18930. 946.50.
