Hi gregnellen,

 

There are a couple of ways to address this issue. 

#1- You can update your W-4 and add additional withholding on line 4(c) of the FormW-4. You must contact the Human Resources/Payroll Department of your employer. Here is a link that has a withholding calculator and a downloadable W-4 with instructions. Also, this information may be helpful Tips for Updating Form W-4 After Doing a Paycheck Checkup.

#2- Leave your withholding alone and pay estimated tax payments on the next two estimated tax deadlines 9/15/22 & 1/15/23. Here is a helpful article about Estimated Tax Payments. To create an account to pay the estimated tax go to https://www.irs.gov/payments.
