How to create file using calculated data

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to create a txt that will display information such:
-------------
LAST, FIRST
Gross:
Tax:
Tax:
Tax:

Net:
-------------
My code works and calculates the taxes correctly, but I need to then store that information on a file (similarly to a pay stub). Thank you.
