What is Gross Up?

Gross up refers to the process of increasing an amount of money to cover any additional costs or taxes associated with it. For example, if an employee's salary is $50,000 and the employer has to pay an additional $5,000 in taxes, the employer may "gross up" the salary to $55,000 so that the employee takes home the desired amount of $50,000 after taxes.
