Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
The income tax withholding tables are higher for Single status than Married. This should be in your favor. Sometimes, however, when a high earner marries someone with much lower income, there can be a problem. If you would like me to analyze your situation further, please Reply with your projected earnings and tax withholding for the year. Also let me know if you have dependents or itemized deductions.
Your year-to-date tax withholding should be on your paystubs. You will have to estimate what it will be by the end of the year based on how many more pay periods there will be.
I have estimated your total tax to be $13,500 for the year. It will probably less since you itemize deductions (I used the standard of $11,400).
If you both used Single - 1 on your W-4 forms, you should have around $14,000 withheld by the end of the year. You should check this with your pay stubs.
I hope this has been helpful to you.
