Your 2018 Federal Tax Estimator

[link:https://www.irs.gov/individuals/irs-withholding-calculator|

I'm letting my payroll-manager freak flag fly...this was just released. If I hadn't changed our W4s and kept the new tax tables in place for myself and DH, we would owe next year!
Wonder how many folks will get an unpleasant surprise next spring.

Thankfully we used someone this year because of a small inheritance made it harder to do it with Turbo Tax. This guy saved our butts. We would have owed 2400 if he had not shown us how the tax tables were screwy.
