IRS to release withholding tables in January

The IRS has issued a statement on the 2018 withholding tables. The IRS is continuing to closely monitor the pending legislation in Congress, and we are taking the initial steps to prepare guidance on withholding for 2018. We anticipate issuing the initial withholding guidance (Notice 1036) in January reflecting the new legislation, which would allow taxpayers to begin seeing the benefits of the change as early as February. The IRS will be working closely with the nation’s payroll and tax professional community during this process. (https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-statement-withholding-for 2018, December 13, 2017.)
