Will enough tax be withheld from your paycheck? Good question

You can start filing your 2017 taxes on … IRS Said to Need Additional $1B to Implement New Tax Law

In the meantime, he urged filers who have complicated tax situations - i.e., anyone who is not single, childless and holding down just one job - to review the number of allowances they now take on their W4s once the IRS puts out its new withholding calculator by the end of February.

The new system ushered in by the tax reform law will be ready for 2019, but the immediate guidelines are created to allow wage earners to get immediate benefits this year without snags. Tax withholdings taken out by payroll determine how much income tax you pay.

Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, said on Thursday that 90 percent of wage earners would see an increase in their take-home pay once businesses change their withholding tables to reflect the new tax code. Setting up a new withholding system is expected to take most of 2018.

The IRS will have to update its systems, publish new forms and publications, revise regulations, train employees on the new tax law and answer taxpayer questions about it.

The tax-collecting agency has faced deep spending cuts for years, including a 75 percent reduction in its employee training budget since fiscal 2009, according to the report.

While employers can begin doing this voluntarily, they will have to comply with the new guidance by February 15. That means employees could start seeing the changes reflected in their paychecks next month, the IRS said.

"Kautter is doing a great job in both roles, but we need a full-time time IRS commissioner at this critical time as the law is being implemented - a person who only has one job", said a senior Republican aide.

"These new tables will help deliver the tax cuts as soon as possible to as many Americans as possible, with as little disruption as possible", Mnuchin said at the White House press briefing. The heads of the IRS should be implementing procedures to address all of the issues noted in the report, and Congress should put all other government agencies on notice to do the same.

For 2019, the IRS anticipates making further changes involving withholding.

Mnuchin threw cold water Thursday on a proposal floated by two such states - California and New Jersey - to get around the $10,000 limit on deducting state and local taxes from federal income.

"We would recommend that all taxpayers review their W-4 with their tax adviser to ensure that they're having the right amount withheld from their paycheck based on their personal situation", she said.

For people with simpler tax situations, the new tables are created to produce the correct amount of tax withholding. Taxpayers are encouraged to use the calculator to adjust their withholding once it is released.

For example, "the tables aren't created to account for married couples with two incomes, or side jobs with no withholdings", said Kathy Pickering, executive director of The Tax Institute at H&R Block. There are new tax credits while other mainstays - like the $4,050 personal exemption - are gone.
