I got married and now my federal withholdings went down by nearly $100

I am concerned about what I might owe at the end of the year if this is the case.  Is there any need for concern?  Right now I claim 1 allowance, as I did before I was married.  Thanks!

You can go through TurboTax's W4 calculator, it will help you decide what allowances you should claim.

You can also just change your withholdings to Married & 0 allowances.

If you did not update your W-4 with your employer after marriage, then you need to ask your employer to explain this to you.

Did you make any employee benefit changes, such as to your 401(k) or medical plan?  If so, that might have lowered your taxable pay andf thus your withholdings.
