Avoid tax-time surprises of large refunds or unexpected tax bills by bringing your estimated taxes in line with what you will actually owe: Check your withholding. If you’re an employee, work with your tax professional or use the IRS Withholding Calculator to check that your withholding is correct. Report any important life changes. If you’ve recently gotten married, had a child, gotten divorced, or added other dependents, you may need to adjust your withholding. If you have changed your name, make sure to file the change with the Social Security Administration to avoid errors at tax time. Have multiple sources of income? If you work multiple jobs or receive reportable income from other sources, you may need to make estimated tax payments. Consult your tax professional for help. To learn more about adjusting your tax withholding or paying estimated taxes, ask your tax professional or check Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Tip courtesy of IRS.gov

WHEN SHOULD I START DRAWING SOCIAL SECURITY If you need Social Security to get by, then the decision is easy: Take it when you can. If you’re in the much happier situation where your family is earning good money without Social Security benefits (say your spouse is working a well-compensated job), then the decision is also fairly easy. Your Social Security in this case is going to be pretty heavily taxes, so don’t take it yet. But if all you care about is drawing the most Social Security you can before you die, the calculation is fairly simple. Let’s say you’re eligible to draw $1,100 a month when you turn 62, but you would get $1,500 a month when you turn 67. In this case, by starting at 62 you would make $66,000 before you reach 67 […]
