Year-End Planning Tip: Double-Check Your Withholding
There might be moves you can make NOW to reduce your 2019 personal taxes – but you will need to act soon!
Tip: Double-check your withholding.
If you had to much or too little tax withheld from your paychecks and other income in 2018, be sure to avoid the same mistake in 2019. One way to check that the right amount is being withheld is to use the IRS’s withholding calculator, located online at https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-withholding-estimator. You also want to determine if your withholding and estimated tax payments are on target for the year. If you discover that not enough tax has been paid to date, you can avoid a tax penalty by increasing your withholding to make up the shortfall before the end of the year.
