Employees: Review Paycheck Withholding

Employers Should Urge Employees to Review Paycheck Withholding

Experts are urging employers to use W-2 season as a time to advise employees to review their paycheck withholding and submit a new W-4 form.

The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) cautions that changes under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act may cause employees to find they under-withheld for 2018, resulting in an unexpected tax bill.

According to the IRS, those most at risk of having too little withheld from their pay include:

  • Taxpayers who itemized in the past but now take the increased standard deduction.
  • Two-wage-earner households.
  • Employees with nonwage sources of income.
  • Those with complex tax situations.
