Tax Expiration Withholding Calculator

Congress has yet to act on the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, which will automatically expire next year. The IRS may be forced to design preliminary withholding tables for next year based on the assumption that the tax cuts expire. If that were to happen, this calculator lets you see what might happen to your paycheck.

Estimates for the year 2011 are based on the IRS's withholding tables from the year 2000 (the final year in which the Bush tax cuts were not in effect) modified by extrapolating bracket levels and various other parameters forward based on inflation. There remains considerable uncertainty about exactly how the IRS would design withholding tables for next year, so these numbers should be considered as rough estimates only.
