Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

Yes they will.

The IRS has released the following statement:

The IRS is working to develop withholding guidance to implement the tax reform bill passed by Congress on December 20. We anticipate issuing the initial withholding guidance in January, and employers and payroll service providers will be encouraged to implement the changes in February. The IRS emphasizes this information will be designed to work with the existing Forms W-4 that employees have already filed, and no further action by taxpayers is needed at this time.

Use of the new 2018 withholding guidelines will allow taxpayers to begin seeing the changes in their paychecks as early as February. In the meantime, employers and payroll service providers should continue to use the existing 2017 withholding tables and systems.

Throughout this process, the IRS will continue working closely with the payroll and tax communities on these changes.

Changes should begin to kick in around February of 2018. Stay tuned to the IRS and check the following periodically

A positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I am credited for assisting.
