Democrats are concerned about your paycheck withholding’s..
It seems as though Democrats are quite concerned that the Trump administration will pressure the IRS to build withholding tables that will take less money from your check making you believe your tax cut will be bigger. The downside is that when you file in 2019, you’ll end up owing money.
In a letter to acting IRS Commissioner David Kautter on Monday, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.) said they are worried that the Treasury Department “may unduly influence the new withholding tables for the 2018 tax year in a manner that will result in millions of taxpayers receiving larger after-tax paychecks this election year but ultimately owing federal income tax when they file in 2019.”
Neal and Wyden asked the IRS to provide them with information by Jan. 12 about Treasury Department officials’ review of the forthcoming withholding tables.
The Democrats also sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office, asking that agency to review the withholding tables to ensure they are adequate.
Let me see if I understand this: Democrats are worried that the IRS may be used to cause harm to citizens for possible political gain?
