Tips for using the IRS Withholding Calculator 

  • Have your most recent pay stub and federal tax return on hand.
  • The calculator’s results are only as accurate as the information you enter.
  • The Withholding Calculator does not ask you to provide sensitive personally-identifiable information like your name, Social Security number, address or bank account numbers. The IRS does not save or record the information you enter on the Calculator.

Following tax law changes, you should do a paycheck checkup using the IRS’s Withholding Calculator and, if necessary, complete a new W-4 form.

  • Have two or more jobs at the same time or only work part of the year.
  • Claim credits like the child tax credit.
  • Have dependents age 17 or older.
  • Itemized deductions in 2017.
