IRS rolls out new tax tables for promised bigger paychecks

US will renegotiate NAFTA or pull out -Mnuchin
The time it will take for employees to see the changes in their paychecks will vary depending on how quickly the new tables are implemented by their employers and how often they are paid - generally weekly, biweekly or monthly. "We'll work with payroll providers; we'll work with companies, we'll do education sessions, so that taxpayers are properly withheld". "In the weeks ahead, the IRS will be providing more information to help people understand and review these changes".
Congressional Democrats are concerned that in making those changes, the IRS may have caved to pressure from the administration to deliver immediate tax savings to workers' paychecks while exposing taxpayers to higher tax bills in 2019.
Despite less withholding, it is also expected that tax returns will not be effected. Meanwhile, tax professionals say there are some other things you need to do now to get ready for tax season next year.

Most people fill out their W-4 form when they're hired at a new job and don't change it unless they get married, have kids, get divorced or experience other life-changing situations.
"We would encourage every taxpayer to run their information through the calculator".
The amount of one withholding allowance on an annual basis increased to $4,150 in 2018 from $4,050 in 2017, the IRS said.
In addition, the IRS will help educate taxpayers about the new withholding guidelines and the calculator. Personal exemptions are a core feature of the current withholding system, but now that they are eliminated, "it's necessary to build a new approach to withholding, which will take some time", the senior IRS official said. Treasury would achieve that, the lawmakers surmised in the letter, by pushing the IRS to change its formula for withholdings.
The agency said it is revising the Form W-4 and the online employee withholding calculator to reflect the new tax law, including changes in available itemized deductions, increases in the child tax credit, the new dependent credit, and the repeal of dependent exemptions.
