US Treasury: 90% of Americans Will See Larger Paychecks in February

The Trump administration on Thursday said most USA workers will see bigger paychecks in February, as a result of the Republican tax overhaul, but many will need to make sure taxes are withheld accurately with an online calculator that does not yet exist. With these new guidelines, companies can start adjusting employee paychecks.

The Treasury Department released new withholding tables that ensure many Americans will see higher pay checks.

The changes implemented by the Treasury Department will work with existing W-4's filed by employees. This will minimize burden on taxpayers and employers. Ron Wyden of OR and Rep. Richard Neal of MA, both Democrats, said in a letter to acting IRS Commissioner David Kautter. "In the weeks ahead, the IRS will be providing more information to help people understand and review these changes".

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, speaks to reporters during a White House daily press briefing in the Brady press briefing room at the White House, in Washington, Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018.

For people with simpler tax situations, the new tables are created to produce the correct amount of tax withholding.

In the letter, Wyden and Neal said that withholding too little in taxes presents "a considerable problem and undue hardship".

To help you get as close to withholding parity as possible, the IRS has long made a withholding tax calculator available.

"We would encourage every taxpayer to run their information through the calculator". "Taxpayers can not make these changes until the revised Form W-4 is published, which the IRS has announced will be forthcoming in the coming months".

"I look forward to GAO's independent review of these tables, which will expose whether the Trump administration is tampering with Americans' paychecks, resulting in a whopping tax bill next year", Wyden said. Until a new Form W-4 is issued, employees and employers should continue to use the 2017 Form W-4. The new tax law changed tax rates and eliminated personal exemptions, which had been the basis of withholding allowances.

For 2019, the IRS anticipates making further changes involving withholding. The IRS doesn't expect that to change much under the new tax law given the preference filers have shown for getting big refunds, rather than just breaking even or having to cut a new check to Uncle Sam when they file their returns.
