Withholding Calculator

You should try to have your withholding match your actual tax liability. If not enough tax is withheld, you will owe tax at the end of the year and may have to pay interest and a penalty. If too much tax is withheld, you will lose the use of that money until you get your refund.

Always check your withholding with this tool if there are personal or financial changes in your life that might change your tax liability. For a recommendation on your withholding, please complete the information below.

Too much tax is being withheld based on your projected tax for the year. If you would prefer to receive the money during the year, you should see if you qualify to have less tax withheld by completing a new Form W-4. If so, give your employer a new Form W-4 showing more withholding allowances in Line 5 or a change in the Single or Married selection in Line 3.

Not enough tax is being withheld from your paycheck. You should give your employer a new Form W-4 showing an additional amount to be withheld from each of your remaining paychecks. We recommend that you enter $0 on Line 6 of your Form W-4 to increase your withholding by this amount for each pay period until the end of the year. At the start of next year you should recalculate your withholding to see if you are having enough withheld and submit a new Form W-4.
