In December 2017, Congress enacted sweeping changes to the federal tax laws. There has been a great deal of discussion as to whether American workers would see significantly greater take-home pay as a result of the new tax laws. In January, the IRS released new withholding tables to help employers determine how much to withhold from their workers' paychecks. Employers were supposed to implement the new withholding changes by February 15th. Now the Treasury Department has released a withholding calculator for American workers to determine if employers are withholding the correct amount.
