  • Who Needs a Paycheck Checkup?  With the new tax law changes, it’s especially important for people to use the Withholding Calculator on IRS.gov, or speak with their tax advisor, to make sure they have the right amount of withholding.  Having too little tax withheld can mean an unexpected tax bill or penalty at tax time next year.
