2018 W-4 Cheat Sheet
The W-4 form controls your withholding by setting the number of allowances you will claim. Under tax reform their are no more allowances. For people with children this pop-up offers suggestions for how to use Child Tax Credits to fill out the allowances space of your W-4. The goal is to have your end of year taxes come out just about what you withhold.
