Make sure your tax withholding is right for you

If you receive a sizable refund of your 2017 taxes, it may be time for you to check your withholding. Reducing your withholding is as simple as filing a new Form W-4 with your employer. The form comes with a worksheet to figure out how many allowances you should claim. Don’t forget to allow for other taxable income besides wages, such as dividends or investment gains.
