On January 11, 2018, the IRS issued Notice 1036, which provides the percentage method tables for income tax withholding in 2018. According to this new method, a flat withholding rate of 22% (down from 25%) will be applied on supplemental wages of up to $1 million and 37% on compensation in excess of $1 million. However, the decreased supplemental withholding means significant income tax obligations, especially for high earning employees.
Also, the Form W-4 is being revised to reflect changes made by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), including changes in itemized deductions, increases in child tax credit, repeal of dependent exemptions and new dependent credit. All these changes will significantly impact individual taxpayers as they fill their returns.
