Simple wage Calculator, jquery not returning value? whats wrong?

So for now my goal is to set the value of annualIncome to be whatever its on the value of #anualtype which is an <input> tag. So i just want to console.log the value to make sure its working... Can someone help pointing out what i am doing wrong?

$( document ).ready(function() {

      let annualIncome = this.val();


    const ferderalIncome = (5.17)/100;
    const socialSecurity = (6.20)/100;
    const medicare = (1.45)/100;
    const utahStateIncome = (4.60)/100;

Hi, check out the name inside your console.log(). It should be the same value as before. Look at the way you wrote it.
