Withholding tax and taxable income

My partner spouse earns a salary and pays withholding taxes, and also receives a Social Security retirement benefit. I receive Social Security retirement benefits and long-term disability insurance. How do I know what we'll owe in tax at the end of the year, and is there a way to withhold it during the year so we're prepared?
