Do you need to adjust your withholding?

If you received a large refund after filing your 2017 income tax return, you’re probably enjoying the influx of cash. But it also means you essentially made the government an interest-free loan. This would usually indicate that you should consider reducing your withholding. But 2018 is a little different: To reflect TCJA changes, the IRS updated the withholding tables, generally reducing the amount withheld. The new tables might cause some taxpayers to not have enough withheld. Contact us for help determining whether you should adjust your 2018 withholding.
