Significant changes are on the way for withholding tables in 2018.

Important items to note:

  • Recalculations of withholding tables will take some time to put together and send to the public. Look to early February at the earliest to see this change.
  • Supplemental wages (bonuses and commission) on any amounts under $1 million will have an increased standard rate of 28% up from 25%.
  • Private sector employees may see a slight difference in their take home pay amounts while others may not notice the change until completing their 2018 individual or corporate tax returns in 2019.
