I want to invest my IRS withholdings. How do I fill out a W-4 so my employer does not do federal withholding?
Legally you can’t. Those withholdings are not yours. They are payments towards your tax liability, made at the time that you earn the income. Pay as you go. It makes sense.So what you want to do is borrow money that isn’t really yours, interest free, invest it for a few months, and then pay it back the next year. Is that correct? While it’s not really permitted you can manage to get away with it. You can’t easily get away with stopping all withholding. That requires stating that you expect to pay zero taxes for the year, which you know is false. It looks suspicious and is easy for the feds to check. Instead, what you can do is reduce your withholding by claiming a large number of exemptions. That’s not nearly as suspicious. When you complete your return you’ll owe a lot of tax, which is clearly against the rules, but you’ll probably get away with it at least for a year or two and maybe longer depending on how lax the IRS is in enforcing the law on scamsters like yourself.I used to claim a large number of exemptions. It was legitimate since I actually had a lot of deductions at that time. But a couple of years I accidentally withheld too little money, more than a couple of thousand dollars. I paid the tax with my return and adjusted my withholding going forward and the IRS didn’t penalize me or question it afterwards. But if you’re talking about under withholding by a lot more than that and year after year then good luck. You might get caught, forced to pay a penalty and interest, and be flagged for special attention in the future.
What changes were made to the 2018 withholding table?
Yesterday the Internal Revenue Service has released Notice 1036 updating the income-tax withholding tables as a result of the tax reform legislation enacted in December. This will be the first in several updated they will improve the accuracy of 2018 withholdings. Here is what your small business needs to know about the new IRS 2018 withholding tables and guidelines.The IRS Releases New 2018 Withholding TableImplementation of 2018 Withholding TableYou should be using the new 2018 withholding tables as soon as possible but no later than February 15th. However, before you implement the 2018 withholding tables continue to use the 2017 guidelines.Future Form W-4 RevisionsLater on this year the IRS plans to revise Form W-4 because this form is ultimately used to determine how much of their paycheck is withheld toward income taxes. Notice 1036 should help to minimize the burden on taxpayer and employers. At this time employees are not required to do anything.2017 Vs. 2018 Withholding TableThe new law passed last month made several changes to the established tax plan including an increase in standard deductions, the repeal of personal exemptions, and updates in tax rates and brackets.The new 2018 withholding tables should result in the correct amount of tax withholdings. Ideal this will mean not too much or too little. The IRS will be revising the withholding tax calculator on their website by the end of February. So your employees can understand their new withholdings.2018 Withholding Table DetailsEmployee portion of Social Security: 6.2% with a taxable wage of $128,400Employee portion of Medicare: 1.45% with no wage base limitMedicare Surtax: .9% which exceeds $200,000 or $250,000 for married taxpayersI hope this was helpful.

What accounts for under-withholding of taxes in 2018? Is it an issue with incorrect IRS withholding tables or my employer is not updating withholding to account for the changes? Is this something I should have known to do myself?
If you have one and only one job. Also, your returns are for YOU alone with that one and only one job. It is very likely you will owe nothing or even get a bit of a refund. The problem comes if you have more then one job, or if you are married filing jointly. The taxes owed are based on total combined income at the appropriate rates, after accounting for standard or itemized deductions.For a person who is married filing jointly the tax brackets are from 0 - 19050 10%, from 19051 - 77400 12%, from 77401 - 165,000 , 22%. Now this is for AGI. Let’s put away the standard deduction for a moment to make the math easy. If you have a family, bringing in 100K, which is all earned by a single earner, then they will tax at 100K, taking into account the first almost 20K is 10%, then next 57K is 12%, and the remaining almost 23K is at 22%. to come out with your taxes due. However, let’s assume it is two income household both making the same amount. Or 50K each. So the taxes will look like the first 20K will be at 10% and the rest at 12%. Or roughly an 11% rate. (again excluding the standard deduction).So for the first scenario, all works out well, it’s also why with withholdings, they generally take out more than is needed for that scenario partially to offset the second scenario. The wise move is to either declare less dependents or have additional taxes taken out from one or both the earners.As to the one and only one job. I also serve as a board member and am paid 1000 a year for this “job”, although I consider it more a volunteer activity. The taxes they take out would be virtually nothing for federal taxes, but when you add to my other income, it being my “last dollars”, should be taxed at 25%. Since I tend to owe a bit each year, I have $400 taken from that 1000 check in December, to bring my total tax bill closer in line.
