4) if(income_before_check_involvement*0.7 >= check_amount,
check_amount = 0,
check_amount - =0.7*income_before_check_involvement
It looks from a quick Google search that the income tax in Nova Scotia is 8.79% for the first $29,590. So if your income x is less than $29,590, your taxes are 0.0879x, your post-tax income is 0.9121x, and your check amount would be decreased by about 0.0532x - $105 (capped at $0 and the check amount). At the high end that would be $1469.36.
