  • This is Mr Balmer's Salary from Microsoft his income from Dividends and other investments is going to be a lot more salary != income Jun 5 '18 at 22:59

That is typically yearly income. In Balmer's case Microsoft is a public company and his salary and bonuses are listed in MSFT's 2010 proxy.


In the US, salary discussions are almost always annual. Unless you're talking part time work with varying hours, then hourly makes more sense.


The income listed are usually yearly salary.
