BEWARE - Tax Reform May Cause You to Owe the IRS Next Year


You've probably noticed a larger paycheck recently, thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, but you may have to pay in next year if you don't check your withholding. The TCJA didn’t shift rates as much as some originally thought, and the effects will vary widely among filers.

Employers should urge their employees to review their form W-4's,

and update if necessary

Protect yourself from owing the IRS next year, and subjecting yourself to underpayment penalties, by verifying the accuracy of your personal allowances and withholdings claimed on your W4 with the 2018 Withholding Calculator.

It's ESPECIALLY important to check your form W-4 if:

  • you are a two-earner married couple with large itemized deductions

  • you claim more than two personal allowances (even if you don't itemize)

  • your personal allowances are for household members (or other dependents) age 17 or older

  • your income includes bonuses, commissions and certain stock options

Please don't hesitate to call our office with any questions.
