Check your paychecks for tax troubles and fix them now

Des Moines, Iowa – Iowans are being reminded by the Internal Revenue Service that new tax laws mean new calculations for payroll taxes.

IRS spokesman Christopher Miller says Iowans should be sitting down with their tax returns and their paychecks this week in order to consult the IRS’s withholding calculator.


Miller says the special Paycheck Checkup tool on the agency’s website will help you and your employer better tailor your withholdings under the new laws.


The IRS is also asking Iowa businesses to look at their payroll and make sure employees are having the right amount of pay withheld.

Miller says changes to the tax law means that the withholdings you might have been using over the last several years are insufficient.
