Owe Less at Tax Time

Hi Doc_I, Thanks for the questions.


Recommend that you fill out the re-designed Form W-4.

Form W-4 Employee’s Withholding Certificate


The simplest way to increase your withholding is to enter in Step 4(c) the additional amount you would like your employer to withhold from each paycheck - divide the amount you expect you will owe by the remaining pay periods.


Or reduce the number of dependents on Step 3.


Hope the above helps.
